"Winemaker Kathy Joseph delivers this seven-barrel ode to her father, whoâÄôd be proud of the tight blackberry, wet clay, shaved cedar and iron-rich aromas. The acidity is bountiful but not overpowering on the palate, where elderberry, dried lavender, wild mint and damp earth combine for a deep and lasting sip." â€“Jul-16
A special selection of 7 barrels from Fiddlestix Vineyard located on the north side of a tight east-west running valley. The well- drained,
clay loam soils consist of chirt and
Monterey shale. Fruit is sustainably farmed and hand-picked.
The expressive artwork that adorns the bottle, "Lucy's 500", was painted by winemaker Kathy Joseph's sister Jody Joseph. Burtie Baby is the nickname Kathy's mom gave to her dad.
