Sourced from a portion of Spear Vineyard with a steep, north facing slope overlooking Highway 246 and situated in the heart of the Sta. Rita Hills appellation. This parcel is predominantly clay loam soil and is within one of the newest and most sought after organically farmed vineyards in the area. Clone 4 is known for being sharp and precise which seemed like a great fit to explore and exhibit Spear.

CRAFT
Fermentation at very low temperature in small stainless-steel tanks, coupled with inhibited malo-lactic and short hose transit ensure precision and focus.

CELLARING
All of the wines are produced with the intention of aging and cellaring for at least 10 years and can easily be enjoyed after 15 years.
