A blend of barrels from our favorite vineyards: Huber, La Encantada, Presqu'ile, and Rita's Crown. The spiciness and structure of the Santa Maria Valley, the earthiness of the Santa Rosa side of the Sta. Rita Hills, the ethereal qualities from the peaks of those hills, the floral characters of the sandy soils along Route 246 all come together in one happy place.

A new vineyard for us in 2015 and now a perennial favorite. Beach-like sandy soils produce a floral, delicate, persistent Pinot with hints of violet and eucalyptus. Wonderfully smooth.

A bit more weight than the 2014 vintage, but the same enchanting blend of earth, red and blue fruit, and Sta. Rita Hills magic. Delicious -- an iconic wine from a benchmark vineyard.

100% barrel fermented and aged, with 20% new French oak. Our first Chardonnay under screw cap, which contributes to the brightness of the wine. On the palate, lemon curd: crisp, citrusy, and creamy all at once. Great with food.

Our first Pinot under screw cap, which preserves the freshness of the wine. Presqu'ile, La Encantada, Huber, and Turner Vineyards all bring their special magic to the party. Bright red and blue fruits, with an underlying earthiness and layers of flavor. An incredible food Pinot, but complex enough to linger over on its own.
