Vineyard Notes: From Scribe’s estate farmed vineyards in Carneros and the west-facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain. Various clones are planted in a combination of volcanic tuff and Huichica loam.
Winemaking Notes: The hand-harvested fruit was pressed whole cluster, slowly and delicately, followed by long and cold fermentations in stainless steel tanks. After 4 months of aging in stainless steel, the wine was bottled on December 9th.
Vintage Notes: A cold winter with average rainfall delayed typical budbreak by a couple of weeks. The dry and warm spring that followed hastened the vines’ growth and a temperate summer provided an ideal condition for the start of veraison. Late summer heat waves prompted an early harvest beginning on August 13th.
Tasting Notes: Guava, lime, sea salt
