About The Wine:

The relatively new Presqu'ile Vineyard is a fairly cool site, which leads to wines with perhaps slightly more old-world inflection than those from our other vineyards. This 2011 bottling is a wine of grace, restraint, nuance, and quiet power. Seeing 50% stem inclusion during fermentation and 50% new French oak barrels during aging, this dark garnet wine delivers a nose of old-fashioned roses, mint, and lavender, while the palate shows sun-warmed boysenberry, olive leaf, and almond paste. This will amply reward time in decanter, or, for those who can wait, a few years in the cellar. 

About The Region:

The convergence of the Pacific's cool marine influence, warmer inland valleys, and gorgeous Western light creates the truly remarkable wine-growing conditions for which the Santa Maria Valley is known.

Winemaker's Notes:

"We respect each vintage as an opportunity to produce wines that reflect that year's unique growing conditions, and we aspire to craft wines which are respectful of the fruit and offer a sense of place: a sense of our Central Coast terroir."
