2020 Ruth Lewandowski Feints
Fox Hill Vineyard is the star, a remarkable site grown to some older vines and then ‘newer’ Italian varieties.
Here’s arneis, dolcetto, barbera, nebbiolo, montepulciano, packed into a slender frame. Ruth (Evan) Lewandowski one of my breakaway, favourite USA producers of recent times. Succulent red of light weight, sticky tannins, sour red berry fruit, licks of cola, root beer, alpine herbs and sweet earthiness. An edgy wine, tangy and bright, should be drunk cold and yet out of wide glassware (tumblers ok). Layers and layers here, spice, fruit, savouriness, crunch. Vivacious red, utterly delicious.
