Our small lot wine is harvested from carefully selected blocks that are estate grown and sustainably farmed. With an east-west valley orientation, the site gets warm days and cool nights that are inﬂuenced by fog and breezes from the San Francisco Bay and Paciﬁc Ocean. The grapes are handpicked and sorted at harvest time in order to ensure premium quality.
All varietals were fermented separately in small stainless steel tanks and pumped-over three times daily. This process aids in the extraction of aromas, ﬂavors and textures in the wine and results in a rounder, softer mouthfeel.
This individual varieties were aged separately in 60% new French oak and neutral barrels for 6 months, then were blended and rebarreled for an additional 12 months before bottling.
