Originally grown on the Scribe Estate pre-prohibition, this St. Laurent bottling is a contemporary homage to the Dresel's pioneering vineyard here on Arrowhead Mountain. 2020 Marked our sixth year making this wine. The fruit comes from the 20 year old Ricci Vineyard in the rolling hills of Los Carneros, 3 miles south of the Scribe Estate, on loam and alluvial clay soils. This is the only St. Laurent vineyard in California.
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.
soil type: Loam, alluvial clay
22 °Bx | pH 3.85 | TA 4.4 g/L | 11.5% alc.
