2017 Clay Court
This wine opens with aromas of pie cherry, pinesap and wet bark. Red fruited with a clay minerality, the purity of fruit on the palate evokes ripe red strawberry and raspberry tea with a backbone of smooth tannins and a graceful, flinty char.
“scented of loamy earth, blackberries, black cherries, black tea leaves, cinnamon stick and sweet spices. It’s medium-bodied with a good core of black fruits, a grainy frame and great freshness, finishing spicy.”
– Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (April 23, 2020))
I love Jory soil because that’s where Clay Court comes from… It’s such a beautiful wine – really smooth but also lingering… It’s a great stand-alone wine – you don’t need food to enjoy it. I like to say it’s “deliciousness in a bottle”.
