A really special vineyard. The forest along the dirt road to Rancho la Viña is thick and jungle-like, hiding the sky. From the cold, windy, Southwest corner of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA, this vineyard creates some of the earthier wines of the AVA, as a result of is climate, clay content and north facing slope. Mushrooms, cigar tobacco and red fruits. Elegant, fresh and light on its feet. Aged one year in neutral wood, and an additional year in stainless drums. Unfined/unfiltered. Drink now through 2030+.
