2016 marked our second year working with The Ricci Vineyard in Los Carneros, which neighbors the SCRIBE Estate to the South. In 2001, Dale Ricci planted this unique vineyard of the native Austrian St. Laurent on loam and alluvial clay.
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.
