The 2015 was a year of experimentation for RJ! After trying to replicate the 2013 Pinot Gris with Vanilla from the oak barrels, we finally reached out to Laffort, a wine product company for help. After creating multiple bench trails, RJ and the Laffort team found a tannin that would express vanilla in the wine at last!
