The vineyard is planted to a mix of clones 4, 169 and 337 on a steep and rocky plot on the East Side slope of Atlas Peak, circumscribed by wildlands. Perched above the fog line at 1600 feet, consistent morning sun exposure nurtures bright fruit while the mountain's volcanic tuff and alluvial gravely loam lend earthy nuance.

2017 meteorological data: After much needed, record-breaking winter rains lingered into early Spring, the vines came out of dormancy in mid March. Wet soils and mild temperatures moved the vines through to veraison with ease, before several heat waves jumpstarted an early, quick harvest.
