This is a fresh interpretation of classic California winemaking--farmed here on the estate in rich Huichica loam, composed over time by volcanic, rhyolitic ash from the nearby Mayacamas range. After a series of trials and experiments in our early years, we eventually decided to age all of our Chardonnay in Sonoma-made concrete tanks, allowed to rest on its heavy lees as long as possible without any oak barrel contact. It all adds up to a powerful, mineral white wine, full of earth tones that expresses our distinctive geological history.

2016 meteorological data: Sonoma's third consecutive warm winter prompted an early start to the growing season. March frosts slightly thinned what would become a warm, healthy vintage. As harvest started early in August the weather cooled and fruit quality soared, prompting a balanced and beautiful vintage.

Soil type: Huichica loam, volcanic tuff

20 °Bx | pH 3.33
