ABOUT THE PRODUCER: 
It's the love and appreciation of all those moments that drew Noah Dorrance into the world of wine. The launch of Reeve Wines gives the winemaking team of Noah, Ross Cobb, and Katy Wilson a studio in which to explore new spaces in their wine worlds. Together they are creating nuanced, elegant expressions of both the familiar and more unconventional varieties.

ABOUT THE LABEL:
“We're doing something a bit unique with the wines in the Libertine series. We've been holding back 3-4 barrels of the current blend each time we bottle to blend into subsequent editions. In effect, there are four barrels of No. 2 in the No. 3 and will be four barrels of No. 3 in the No. 4. It's not quite a solera system but it's our own unique way to create a multi-generational lineage through the wine.” reevewines.com
