Scribe’s Estate vineyard on the southwest-facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain in the southern Mayacamas Volcanic Range. For this bottling we harvested Clones 809 and Robert Young, planted in volcanic tuff and Huichica loam soil. Watch the story on IGTV.
2019 meteorological data: Northern California experienced another cool and wet winter which kept the vines dormant through late March/Early April. The springtime brought a mix of heat spells followed by cool and wet weather. Our initial predictions were for a later harvest, but the warm summer months hastened the growing cycle of the vines. Harvest started for us August 14th with Rose of Pinot noir and ended with our Atlas West Cabernet Sauvignon in mid-October.
soil type: Huichica loam, volcanic tuff
20.8 °Bx | pH 3.34 | TA 5.7 g/L | 12.5% alc.
