Longboard was born from the passion of Oded Shakked, surfer first, winemaker later, who brings a unique perspective to winemaking, or rather winegrowing as he prefers to call it. Longboard believes that great tasting wines are those that are true to the people and place that grew them. Thus, they extend the notion of “terroir” to include the human aspect, not just the soils, climate and weather.
Full of black dark fruit nuances, with a hint of floral character and some bacon-fat add complexity and marry well with the wild fennel note.
Delicious with venison and red wine casserole.
Robert Pusker, Wine Advocate, 2019: 93/1000 points.
