Every vintage we search for the most outstanding barrels that showcase the most spectacular attributes of the vintage. A few magnificent gems amongst our barrels emerge which are worthy of our Precioso bottling. We create a wine worthy of cellaring that shows the true potential of the Keller Estate property.
Upon first glance, deep and penetrating, red and black in color. Aromas mesmerize with red cherry, raspberry, orange peel, white pepper, and rich baking spice aromas. It seduces with a juicy and silky midpalate before finishing long with lingering memories of cedar, cherries, and raspberries.
With a higher percentage of new French oak and fruit from the property best representing the vintage, the Precioso wines made by Winemaker Julien are a true testament to the Petaluma Gap and Keller Estate. Coupled with an ideal growing season like 2018, this bottling is especially spectacular. A winemaker's dream vintage that wine lovers hope for every year.
