Four barrels from La Rinconada Vineyard (clone 15), at the foot of the Santa Rosa Hills, provide elegant structure and flavor. Two barrels from Zotovich Vineyard (clone 96), where grapes are grown in white “beach sand” soil, provide bright essence of pineapple and lemon zest flavors.

Winemaker Notes
The grapes were picked in the cool mornings and whole-cluster pressed. After settling, the clear juice was racked into French oak barrels and fermented at a cool temperature to retain fresh fruit flavors while gaining roundness during barrel fermentation. 100% malo-lactic fermentation.
