What happens when Pete Stolpman and Raj Parr partner up to make a wine? Well, let's just say you need to discover this bottle. This esoteric collaboration is labeled “Combe” referring to the French word for a small sheltered valley within a vineyard. Sometime around 2010, Rajat Parr became convinced of the great potential for the pale red Trousseau grape on the Limestone soils of Stolpman Vineyards.
Such a fun, deliciously zippy, and fresh wine. Lots of tart cherries and jammy red fruit. Put a chill on it and, well, chill!
