From a vineyard conceived in the wild-west mind of Stu Bewley to a pretty bottle of bubbles, Alder Springs sits alone at the northern reaches of Mendocino. The nose reminds us of how close this vineyard is to the sea. Pretty fruit and density is framed by a slatey hint of foggy tide— reminding us a bit of Montée de Tonnerre Chablis. The palate is suave and dense. With this stuffing combined with its bright acidity, this wine should age gracefully for some time.
