WINEMAKER NOTES:

 

Hand-harvested at night, fermented with native yeast, and malolactic fermentations. Aged for 16 months in French oak; 20% new. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Dark aromatics of espresso, meat, and white pepper draw you in, but it’s the rich entry on the peppery and dense palate that’s a showcase of this vineyard. They complement the tightly wound but very long finish.

SOILS: 

Monterey shaly loams. This comes from the own-rooted original planting in 1973. 

ACCOLADES: 

96 Points - Vinous
95 Points - Wine Enthusiast
93+ Points - Wine Advocate
