The truly great wines of the world come from a singular place and could not be sourced from anywhere else. Do the steep slopes of the Poetry Vineyard belong on the shortlist of great properties? We recently spent a few days with a documentary filmmaker who posed this and other questions to Vineyard Manager David Abreu and Consulting Winemaker Philippe Melka. David, having farmed properties like Colgin, Harlan and Screaming Eagle, knows his way around great properties. Philippe’s time with Pétrus and Cheval Blanc give him a good perspective on this question too. Click above to watch this short, 5 minute exploration of the Poetry Vineyard’s potential.
“96 points - This wine is gorgeously pure and textured yet strikingly long and intense.“ – Robert Parker
