When asked to express his viewpoint on organic winemaking, Evan responds: “A winegrower working incessantly in his/her vines, with a mind focused both on the sky above and the soil below, not just the fruit zone, will naturally come to deeply know their vines and their specific place and inevitably seek to eradicate those things that destroy in favor of choosing to support and encourage life. It must start with these connections in the vineyard. Wine made by these people, the ones earnestly and honestly seeking to know their farms, in the end will be organic wine to me.”
Feints is a Piedmontese inspired blend coming from the Fox Hill Vineyard just east of the Russian River. In this blend are four red varieties—Dolcetto, Barbera, Nebbiolo, and a bit of Montepulciano, with some Arneis blended in for good Piedmont measure. The blend has increased its percentage of white to 30% with the 2020 vintage. This wine completes a full carbonic maceration keeping this bottle light on its feet and incredibly juicy. A true vin de soif!
