Full-bodied. Concentrated. Opulent. These are some of the descriptors we often hear applied to our wines. However, we also hear the words elegant, balanced, complex. Yes, through hard work in the vineyard and winery, we believe you can have it all, the best of both worlds. Our approach to winemaking is simple, yet difficult. We prefer to intervene in nature’s process as little as possible. We often rely on uninoculated fermentations and use minimal new oak. We rarely fine or filter. However, we are not dogmatic and will intervene if we feel it results in a higher quality wine while still remaining true to the vineyard.

2005 Vintage

A very atypical vintage for the north coast of California. A wet spring was followed by a very moderate summer. Not heat waves in the final stretches of the season. Fruit was able to hang, developing flavors while sugars remained in check. Fantastic quality across the board.
