2017 "G" by Alex Guarachi
Sourced entirely from Guarachi’s Meadowrock Estate, grapes for“G” have been meticulously hand-picked, hand-sorted and night-harvested from the finest 30-year old vines found on the property’s rich rocky earth. Meadowrock sits facing Southwest at an elevation of 1,400 to 1,760 feet- perched on Atlas Peak above the fog line that often blankets the valley below.
