The Grape

By combining grapes from different vineyards within the Santa Cruz Mountains, we capture characteristics specific to the region that includes complex aromatics, concentrated flavors and spice. The result is an extraordinarily elegant finished wine. 

The Land

The warmer climate vineyards of Pearson (in Woodside) and Jewel (off Summit Road) produce small clusters of dark fruit that provide the muscular component for this wine. Saveria Vineyard lies in a cooler location near Corralitos, which produces fruit that leads to graceful yet powerful wine. 

The Season

 

2015 marked the 4th year of drought in California. Cool weather during bloom in May and June led to a remarkably early harvest, resulting in lower yields, but fruit with concentrated flavors and colors.
