Vineyards: Hopland (75%) and Yountville (25%)
Handcrafted from sustainably grown Mendocino and Napa Valley grapes. Hoplands warm days and unusually cool nights lend maximum ripeness while preserving acidity, while Yountvilles clay-loam soils add vibrant fruit
To get to that fresh, fruit driven style; whole berry fruit went to press (retaining better fruit
character and less oxidation) then a long cold fermentation three weeks in stainless steel.
No barrel aging.
Alcohol: 13.0% refreshingly balanced in todays world of high-alcohol wines.
