Tasting Notes

When to drink
Enjoy now or cellar for 1-2 years
On the nose
The bouquet is seriously fragrant and lovely; dried flowers and dried herbs, smoked-meat, charcuterie, dried mushroom, vanilla, pot pourri and milk chocolate.
On the palate
Medium-bodied and appealingly soft and supple, with gentle tannins and early drinkability. A very charming Nebbiolo.
Product Notes
The inaugural release from the Prothero Vineyard is everything Stephen Pannell had in mind: A pourable, slurpable Nebbiolo for everyone, anytime. It’s delicately floral and bursting with bright fruit, with beautifully integrated tannins that unfurl gently, plus lovely length and balance.
