Best of Class
Eco Terreno Three Vine Red - Alexander Valley AVA - 2013
The 2013 Three Vine Red is a dark ruby color. The nose is suggestive of sweet black cherry and milk chocolate followed by enticing notes of Herbs de Provence. Smooth yet medium-plus in body, this wine offers bright flavors of blackberry, mocha, and black cherry that are expertly balanced by whispers of dried herbs and toast. The lingering finish echoes flavors of black fruits and herbs.
Eco Terreno "Cuveé Acero" Sauvignon Blanc - Alexander Valley AVA - 2017
In the glass the wine has pale colors of light greenish-gold. The nose is extremely aromatic and has a mélange of citrus fruit and herbal notes – lime zest, white peach and a hint of lemon grass. In the mouth, abundant fruit flavors of green apple, green pineapple and are balanced by a long and pleasingly dry, flinty finish. Made with Biodynamically Grown Grapes.
