The Sangiacomo Vineyard
This sustainably farmed, low-yielding site, just outside the city of Sonoma, is famous for Chardonnay.
San Pablo Bay
Cooling influence extends the growing season for slow, even ripening and perfectly balanced acidity.
Sandy, Well-draining Soils
Stresses vines into producing grapes of full varietal intensity.
Very open and effusive. Tropical fruit, ripe pineapple, pineapple upsidedown cake. Focused palate. Barrel structure. Seamless. Good balance. Sweet and fruity mid palate. Tropical carries through with lemon curd and vanilla on the finish.
In 2014, an exceptionally dry winter and warm spring led to an early bud break. The growing season ran ahead of schedule all year. The lower yields produced concentrated, complex, and age-worthy wines.
