Tasting notes

The Cuttings is produced from a small dry grown vineyard established from cuttings taken from the original 1880 vines. Planting started in the early 1980s with the strongest pruning rods from the old vines dug into the stony soil. Each year a few more rows were added until the vineyard was completed in 1987. The Cuttings vineyard are even more low yielding than the 1880 vines, and are typically more stressed, lacking another century of root growth. Berries are smaller than the 1880 but they share the thick skins and the vineyards characteristic soft tannins and luscious fruit.
