Chenin Blanc India THE WINERY >> Scottish miner James Skinner was among the first to establish a winery and distillery along the busy Pony Express Trail in the Gold Rush region in 1861. His great-great-great-grandson Mike explored the connection more than 140 years later and bought property in nearby Fair Play, planting vineyards and reviving the family legacy. The winery itself is completely modern, solar-powered and constructed of recycled steel. Hilltop views stretch across the foothills and Sierra. The family also recently acquired the original property. Son Kevin and his wife Kathy, who discovered the connection, live in Aptos. Kevin works as a captain in the Salinas Fire Department.
Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) India WHY I LIKE IT >> This wine is like a favorite trail on a dark night, known paths are infused with mystery. Inky color gives way to aromas of dark fruit and pepper. The arching flavor profile includes black cherry, cranberry, blackberry and leather. Nice tannins give good structure and tartness. Slight mint colors the long finish.
