    Melon

    2013 / Santa Ynez Valley

    From old vines planted in the early 70’s, this block grows on sandy soils in an exceptionally breezy part of Santa Maria Valley out at Bien Nacido vineyard. The fruit is pressed, fermented, and aged all in tank to ensure the minerality, freshness, and tension we look for when enjoying this variety.

    $24/btl

    Sauvignon Blanc

    2013 / Santa Ynez Valley

    A combination of both tank and barrel fermentations that are aged in neutral barrels. We source our fruit from three vineyards in Happy Canyon called Grassini, McGinley, and Star Lane. Varying soils of sand, shale and gravel at Star Lane and heavier clays with larger yellow and red chert, and serpentine rocks at both McGinley and Grassini. $25/btl

    2013 McGinley Vineyard
    Simply a selection of our favorite barrels in the cellar. The goal was to create a wine of delicacy that would also have the best opportunity to age. Soils at McGinley consist of varying levels of clay and loam with red and gold chert, serpentine, and shale. $36/btl

    2013 Grassini Family Vineyard
    Again a selection of our favorite barrels from this great vineyard site back in Happy Canyon. Grassini sits a bit lower in the canyon making it later to ripen and grows on the heaviest soils, mostly of clay loam, that we work with. $36/btl

    Cabernet Franc

    2012 / Santa Ynez Valley

    From multiple blocks in the Star Lane vineyard. The wine fermented retaining the whole cluster and once pressed is then transferred to neutral barrels for the winter. Once malolactic fermentation is complete, we quickly rack the wine back to tank and bottle to retain the natural Co2 present in the wine to keep it fresh. $30/btl


    Sans Soufre Also from our holdings at the Star Lane Vineyard. Essentially treated the same as the main cuvee, but we decided that since the fruit was so perfect to make this wine without the use of SO2. The result is a extremely juicy and bright wine without any preservatives added. $36/btl
