Bret credits the vineyard with his winery’s success. His “Spot” signifies a special growing place, with vines that are south facing. Located at 900 feet above sea level, the soils are composed of ancient marina sand (that was once a beach of sorts) that offers excellent drainage. The juice is highly concentrated that is then fermented in small bins, half new oak and half used. Urness adheres to traditional winemaking techniques that he feels make his wines special. He calls his wine a “chameleon” that changes as it stands open for a longer time. Enjoy violets, and fresh black and blue fruit with savory meat qualities in the background.
