Chardonnay Sta Rita Hills 2015 
A rich wine delivering full texture and layered flavors of apricot, orange blossom, vanilla, and butterscotch. These grapes were sourced from the oldest planting of own rooted Chardonnay vines in the Sta Rita Hills. This is the low yielding Wente clone, which produces wine of generous flavor and texture. 

Pinot Noir Sta Rita Hills 2014
A Pinot that delivers all around, with great fruit concentration of raspberries and strawberries, offering a savory texture and complex finish of sweet spice. The 2014 was sourced from Radian Vineyard, which is the furthest South West vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills.  It is a blend of clone 115 from an incredibly steep west facing rocky hillside, and clone 667 from a ridge top block with just a couple inches of moon dust for the vines to mine nutrients.

GSM Santa Barbara County 2014
A truly delicious blend of Sryah and Mourvèdre from cult vineyards in Alisos Canyon of Los Alamos, dominated by Grenache from a great organic vineyard we farm for a dedicated client committed to growing the highest quality grapes.  The wine is a friendly balance of generous juicy fruit, with savory cool climate spice keeping you wanting more.

Thompson Vineyard Grenache 2014

These 28 year old own rooted vines are located in the Alisos Canyon of Los Alamos, an ideal climate for the challenging but rewarding Grenache variety. This incredible site produces wine of deep color and lush texture, with beautiful aromatics of raspberries, roses, and dry brush.

Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Ynez Valley 2014
Sourced from 47 year old own rooted vines in the Los Olivos Ava of Santa Ynez Valley.  They are the oldest vines in the county, and have true maturity in their self regulating low crop yield.  The clusters are tiny, as are the berries.  Because of this cluster architecture, the wine has incredible color and flavor extraction.  The old vines produce a wine with very refined tannins, complimented with 20 months of aging in French Oak, Seguin Moreau.
