Scribe’s Estate vineyard on the southwest-facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain in the southern Mayacamas Volcanic Range. Clones Robert Young, Washington-15, and Clone 6 are planted in volcanic tuff and Huichica loam soil. We have specific rows in the Robert Young and Clone 6 Chardonnay plantings that are dedicated to our sparkling wine program and farmed for that purpose leaving more leaf coverage to avoid any potential sunburn on the grape skins.

vintage: 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: volcanic ash and huichica loam

Tirage occurred in June of 2017 and was aged on lees until disgorgement on July of 2019
