LOOMIS 'All Weather' Gift Pack - Air and Snow
PERSONALITY: When you reach the sky, turn left. Rare, Rhone varietals from a heady Napa Valley elevation. On a single mountain estate, Jeff Loomis set out to succeed where few have dared to dream. Everyone told him Rhone varietals would not succeed in Napa and he's proven naysayers wrong. Been doing it for 10 years now and Fire has just come in to fruition after all those years.
WHY WE LOVE IT:
- 100% Napa Valley fruit, 2000 foot elevation
- Organically and biodynamically farmed
- A single mountain estate vineyard
- Lovely new packaging and labels
WINEMAKER: Michael Andrews (Shadybrook Estate, Goosecross, White Cottage Ranch)
WHAT WE TASTED:
Snow is delicately balanced, offering fragrances of white nectarine, Asian pear, lemon zest, brioche toast, jasmine, narcissus and white tea, followed by sandalwood and toasted macadamia nut. The palate is velvety, but balanced by crisp citrus acidity.
Air Rosé has juicy aromas of fresh bing cherry and roses lighting up this garnet hued sophisticated yet fun wine. Racy acidity drives floral and citrus flavors that combine for a clean crisp finish with an ever so slight hint of lavender. Dry, vibrant and fruity - a year round food pairing choice.
Fire - Whoah! We've waited a long time for this wine and it was worth it. Inky purple color and big, rich, savory aromas along with blueberry, blackberry and herbs. Massive concentration with more black fruit and a little pepper, smokey, yet fine grain tannins allow for a gorgeous balanced, soft finish.
Ember blend with aromas and flavors of ripe red cherry, plum and blackberry blend perfectly with spice and creamy cola. Slight savory notes, nuances of smoked spice and wildflowers. Expect great acidity, a supple mouthfeel and a long finish from this sagacious wine.
