2013 Gold Coast Pinot Noir

This 2013 Pinot Noir from Gold Coast Vineyard was a delight to make because mother nature was on our side. The growing season was ideal. In spring we had a good fruit set, with no wind or frost. Summer was steady with sunny days and the needed cool down during the nights (but not too cold). Luckily, to help perfectly ripen the grapes, August came along with a slight jump up in heat. Perfect timing as the grapes got enough warmth & hang time to achieve phenolic ripeness.

The 30 year-old vines help lend toward the complexity of this wine. The dark fruit characteristics are focused but dance with minerality and the Dijon clone undoubtedly expresses itself with spice .

 

 

2015 DUVARITA PINOT NOIR

Duvarita vineyard has routinely been a favorite of ours, no matter who is working with these distinctively old-world-tasting grapes. The windy, exceptional cool days off the Lompoc coast are offset by the ripening of the sun bouncing off the desert-like sand that bedrocks the vineyard. Flavors are bright and light and capture the selenity of the 2015 growing season. 

 

 

 

 

2016 SLIDE HILL GRENACHE

Slide Hill is positioned in one of the cooler pockets of Edna Valley in San Luis Obispo, once owned by Qupe and called Sawyer Lindquist. This year's Grenache is powerfully fruit expressive, but has found its flavors through restrained, lower alcohol and is nicely tannic and peppery. The sometimes candied nature of Grenache has been subdued even more with our 50 percent whole cluster fermentation. 

 

 

 

 

2013 Larner Vineyard Syrah

I was always amazed by the focus that Larner Syrah exhibited. Luckily for me, this vineyard has a strength that captures a sense "of place" so distinctly. Without over-extraction, picking at a lower brix and not covering the fruit with new oak, it was my goal to make a drinkable Syrah.

The wine seems to find a way to remain savory with a "meaty-ness" but also shows what a Syrah should: a brightness of blueberry, boysenberry and currant. Small hints of iron and pepper can be found as fruit and earth find a way to become one.

 

 

2016 mirabella VINEYARD sauvignon blanc

We truly believe some of the finest best Sauvignon Blanc in the world can be achieved right outside our front door. Obviously, it all begins with the land and is shaped by our ability to understand that land and its beauty. The remarkably unique soil structures and climate variations in the far east side of Santa Ynez valley are one of the reasons our Sauvignon Blanc offers such strong, terroir-shaped characteristics.  

We are especially proud of the dense aromatics of this fresh, high-toned Sauvignon Blanc. There is something cool and tropical about quality Sauvignon Blanc sourced from the Los Olivos AVA, and we chose to focus on the core of those flavors by aging in oak barrels and letting the bright acid naturally work its magic.
