An alternate lens into the nuns’ terroir, Ruscum comes from
the same vineyards and the same harvest as Coenobium, but its
juice spends in excess of two weeks in contact with the skins. If
Coenobium is a wine of autumn, then Ruscum is its winter sibling—always richer and more substantial. Notes of apricot jam,
white pepper, grapefruit rind, and gunflint frame a concentrated,
almost oily-textured palate, and a zesty acidity contributes to the
wine’s overarching sense of friendliness.
