Wine Notes

For something to appear effortless, an incredible amount of effort has to be expended. It’s paradoxical, but accurate. This is just as true in winemaking as it is in life, be it an intricately choreographed ballet or a perfectly-timed pass from the quarterback. To the untrained eye, both appear completely natural, which only heightens our sense of awe. What we don’t see are the hours, months, and years of grit, vicious preparation, and focus. There’s nothing “hands-off” about accomplishment. At Montelena, the brilliant transparency so evident in our wines is the product of astonishing effort, not merely getting out of the way. True simplicity isn’t that simple.
