These grapes were picked from our different vineyard blocks at our
Carneros Estate ranch. This cool climate growing region is influenced
by its proximity to the San Pablo Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The cool
temperature extends the ripening time of the grapes which allows them
to retain their acid levels and herbal character contributing this wine's
brightness and structure. The vines are planted in well drained volcanic
soils of our hillside vineyard.
