Hand harvested at night, and whole cluster pressed. It was then barrel fermented with native yeast and malolactic fermentations. Aging was sur lie for 18 months in French oak; 22% new. This wine was bottled unfiltered.

Meyer lemon, chamomile, and cut straw, come out of the glass. The bright entry yields to a dense and energetic palate that is all straight lines and mouth watering minerality.

SOILS

Elder and Chamise shaly loams with Pleasanton sandy loam. The vineyard has a great diversity of soils containing limestone, shales, uplifted marine volcanics and loam.
