Santa Barbara is a unique region where morning fog, which blankets the vineyards every morning, prolongs the growing season and helps the grapes retain a strong level of natural acidity as well as rich concentration.
Produced using a Micro Cru philosophy where small lots of fruit are vinified individually, this wine is aged in carefully selected French Oak barrels and bottled unfiltered.
Scents of raspberry, blackberry, tea leaf, and rose petal are followed by a tapestry of complex flavors that include wild strawberry, pomegranate, and clove.
