* BLACK CHERRY * CHAPARRAL * MINT *
In 2007 we began farming this vineyard one mile from the Scribe Estate. Planted in equal parts Martini and Pommard clones, the vineyard's Huichica loam soil and cool Carneros climate ripen this fruit at a steady, gradual pace.
2020 meteorological data: A cold winter with average rainfall delayed typical budbreak by a couple of weeks. The dry and warm spring that followed hastened the vines' growth and a temperate summer provided an ideal condition for the start of veraison. Late summer heat waves prompted an early harvest beginning on August 13th.
