Notes from the Winemaker:

Quince, citrus peel and wet gravel dominate the aromatics on this wine. Intense minerality on the palate is balanced by vanilla, meyer lemon and butterscotch flavors. The wine finishes with racy acidity and is a perfect pairing wine.

The 2013 vintage marks our third as winemakers and we couldn’tbe more thrilled with the outcome. Like 2012, 2013 had near picture-perfect weather and a long and sustained growing season that allowed the vines to ripen the fruit to exactly where we wanted. Two good years in a row meant a lot more fruit than the vines could handle, however, and we had to spend a lot of time managing the crop so the vines were not overloaded and in balance. Though the drought continued in 2013 and we did not hit our average rainfall, we experimented with reduced watering and ended up cutting our water usage by 50%, taking us one step closer to sustainable farming. Our 2013 wines are lush with ripe fruit flavors but balanced with coastal acidity thanks to the constant fog coverage in Occidental.

Ratings & Reviews

Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This dry wine has a nice sense of reserve along with subtle lemony, earthy and milky flavors that linger on the finish. The texture has a nip of acidity and the body is light to medium." - Jim Gordon (11/1/2015)
