100% Pinot Noir. 100% Santa Barbara County.
Crafted in the German "halbtroken" or "fairly-dry" style, this 100% Riesling from Santa Barbara County boasts notes of candied lemon, honeysuckle, sweet peaches, and orange blossom honey. A delightful, vibrant wine, with a weighty complexity and a hint of sweetness.
The Syrah vines in the Potrero Vineyard receive only natural rainfall for moisture, and this lack of water means smaller crop yields, fewer clusters per-vine, and berries that are packed with concentrated sugars and acid. The flavors are powerful and intense. Dark, classic Syrah notes of lavender, blackberries and spiced oak and smoke greet you first, followed by coffee and black pepper. The finish is spiced fruit and berries, with a savory black olive note. Limited Production of 180 cases.
Dry-farmed and barrel-aged, this Grenache was meticulously hand-harvested at night, and hand-sorted before pressing. Dark and rich in appearance, but soft in style, it displays traditional notes of ripe cherry, strawberry, plum, and baking spices. The tannins on the finish are a sweet and lingering promise that this wine will age gracefully. Only 193 cases made.
