Powerful aromas of ripe cherry coulis, white pepper, and beautiful earthiness abound. An incredibly dense and fruit forward palate is layered with flavors of red berry compote, cardamom, and mineral-laced acidity.


The Sta. Rita Hills appellation blend is sourced from Radian Vineyard, Bentrock Vineyard and Clos Pepe Estate Vineyard. The majority of the blend is comprised of fruit from Radian, which sits at 1,000 feet in elevation exposing the vines to fog and cooling ocean breezes. These vineyards are blended to create a beautiful representation of the region with concentrated flavors and lively acidity.

Wine Facts

The 2016 harvest was early, with slightly lower than normal yield, but exceptional fruit quality. After many years of drought, we experienced winter rains that helped alleviate the dry conditions that plagued us for the last four years. The entire ripening season enjoyed cooler than average days and nights. July and August were particularly temperate allowing for longer hang times, which ripened the grapes uniformly.
