Deep red in color, this wine has intense aromas of nougat, brown spice, bright cherry, and wet stone. The palate is full and layered with flavors of red berry fruit coulis and bright acidity. Very long and rich it is a true representation of the Sta. Rita Hills.

Wine Facts

Sourced primarily from the vineyards in the Sta. Hills Appellation, the Radian vineyard is one of the western most. This vineyard has a wide array of slopes, aspects, and exposures. Radian is at an elevation of 1000 feet, and the vines are exposed to fog and cooling ocean breezes. Bentrock is located on a rolling, north-facing bench in the western reaches of the appellation. The fruit is slower to ripen allowing a longer hang time. Clos Pepe is situated in a cool enclave with in the appellation. The prevailing winds come from the Pacific and slow the ripening of these vines, allowing for saturated flavors to accumulate throughout the growing season.
