It all started with a passion to produce single varietals that are vibrant and fresh, from carefully sourced vineyard sites. The inspiration was found in the truth that wine is a perfect reflection of time and place, the culmination of climate and season, site and study, and that moment you share a bottle with friends and family.
ARTWORK | John Duckworth | "My favorite spot off River Road where I return regularly to climb down a bluff on the side of the road in my hip waders and walk out into the marsh with my camera gear to document the changing color of the low country marsh."
VINEYARD NOTES | Kinda all over the Valley. Main portion from Yountville. 2019 was a baller year and the last where we had a measurable amount of rain that benefited the vines. Short, concentrated
yields coupled with mild summer and longer growing season. Harvest October 19th-24th.
WINEMAKER'S TASTING NOTES | 66% new French oak aging. Purple in color. Big nose full of dark, black plum and cassis. Luxurious palate of brambly blackberry and cigar box with hints of ripe plum. Finishes long with chewy but supple tannins. 800 cases produced.
