The vineyard has a simple moniker, “a warm spot in a cool place.” This unique climate allows us to achieve optimally ripe grapes with a vin-de-garde personality. Soils of Carneros are thin and the vines struggle to find nutrients, thus low vigor is the norm. The wine exhibits organic notes derived from the soil, while the palate reveals immense depth and complexity.
Aromatically the wine has notes of quince preserves, chamomile, lemon sorbet, and ginger tea. The palate is textured with layers of citrus fruits and limestones, showing to be much more minerally driven and even adapting a more greenish hue on the edge.
