Marketing Description:

The 2005 Shell And Bone White once again features Viognier and Roussanne grown in the hills west of Paso Robles, where the soil consists of fractured and decomposed limestone and clay; the remnants of an era when the region was largely undersea. When I first had the opportunity to work with grapes grown in clay-limestone soils, I quickly realized why so many of the world's great wines come from such soils. The aromatic qualities of wines grown in limestone derive from it a kind of dynamic tension, what is referred to by some as "nerve" or "nervosity." It's the kind of thing that can make the hair stand up on the back of your neck, in extreme cases. (No cause for alarm, just pay attention!) The sense of place in such wines is unmistakable.
