The Laurel Vineyard located on a hillside slope 4 kilometers from the ocean. Very windy area of calcareous and very poor clay soil; never cultivated prior to our plantation. During the winter and fall, morning fog from the ocean lasts until noontime.
Expressive, aromatic, round in the mouth, and mineral. Strong fruit character in line with varietal archetype, with lush acidity and soft melon sweetness on the middle palate. Finish is clean, fresh, and telling of great potential for in-bottle evolution.
"Vibrant, pure and driven, with mouthwatering white asparagus, thyme, lime and pippin apple note. There's ample concentration, excellent length and fine definition. Drink now through 2011. 2,665 cases made."
