Here at Scribe, we’ve been experimenting, making and sipping vermouth behind the scenes for years. 2020 marks our first true bottling and release. The Scribe Vermouth is made with Estate Chardonnay then fortified and infused with grapefruit, green cardamom and rose buds grown on the Scribe farm. It tastes like a Sonoma summer evening to us.
We produced a limited edition bottling for the SVS; 34 cases total. We enjoy drinking it before dinner, over ice with a lemon peel.
2019 meteorological data:Northern California experienced another cool and wet winter which kept the vines dormant through late March/Early April. The springtime brought a mix of heat spells followed by cool and wet weather. Our initial predictions were for a later harvest, but the warm summer months hastened the growing cycle of the vines. Harvest started for us August 14th with Rose of Pinot noir and ended with our Atlas West Cabernet Sauvignon in mid-October.
soil type: Huichica loam, volcanic tuff
