There is a great deal of beauty and expression to be found in the 2019 vintage. The growing season began with a cool winter and heavy rainfall, we even had snow on our estate! We already had cover crop coming up at this time so the snow really oxygenated soils and brought them to life. Spring was clear and bright with early bud break and cool sunny days. Summer followed with mild temperatures allowing moderate ripening and resulting in an eloquent and expressive vintage with superb fruit quality.
Sourced from a small selection of family-owned vineyards on the Sonoma Coast as well as our Camp Meeting Ridge estate. Each vineyard is carefully chosen for its farming practices, coastal infuence, and fruit standards.
