Aging PotentialDrink now through 2030
Born in Montreal, Canada and raised by his grandmother in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, Doug ventured west at 18 for college. His journey took him from New Mexico to Montana and eventually to California where he pursued his talent for winemaking.
Doug founded and was the winemaker for Dogwood Cellars for twelve years before joining the Spicy Vines team. Doug is known for sourcing the greatest grapes from notable regions. His focus has always been on producing small lot artisan wines. He prides himself on shepherding the wines though the winemaking process, never controlling them, but always allowing them to develop into the best that they can be.
Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels, 20% new.
