Matello Tech Sheet: Lazarus 2009
AVA: Willamette Valley
Cases Produced: 420
Vineyards: Whistling Ridge, Winter’s Hill, Bishop Creek
The Lazarus cuvee is a blend of 17 barrels from 3 of our vineyards: Whistling Ridge, Winter’s Hill, and Bishop Creek. Average vine age is 20 years old, and all three vineyards are dry farmed vineyards (of which 2 are certified LIVE). This cuvee highlights the pretty fruit, and forward character of the vintage. Friendly, forward, and precocious, the 2009 Lazarus will develop well for the next 5-10 years.
