Reviews For This Wine


 
Vinfolio | 93

A nose of hardened honey-infused lime and warm dried grain. The palate is pure and silky tasting of sweet honeysuckle and backed by a trace of oily acidity.

About This Producer


The Scholium Project, made by Abe Schoener, pushes the envelope of expectation in wines, producing esoteric varieties from somewhat obscure vineyards througout northern California. Schoener, who completed his graduate work in Ancient Greek Philosophy, concentrated on Homer. His label's name translates to "school, schooling" from Greek, and signifies an undertaking for the sake of learning, paralleling his winemaking journey. Schoener took a sabbatical from teaching in 1998 to work as an intern at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars in Napa Valley before moving on to work in the cellars of Luna. He then began the Scholium Project in 2004, entitling wines using proprietary names rather than varieties. In the cellar, Schoener allows his wines to take their own natural course by leaving them undisturbed in the barrel, not sulfuring or topping off - instead he allows the fermentation to develop a ripeness particular to wine, not fruit. Scholium Project wines are extremely limited in production.
