A clone 96 sourced from a steep, north facing slope on the western border of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA. Severe ocean winds influence the land while sand and gravel characterize the soil profile. Beautiful harmony between the bright minerality of site with the rounder mouthfeel characterized by this clone.

CRAFT
