This racy single-vineyard wine captivates with aromas of spring flowers and lemon peel, notes of Gravenstein apple, brioche and chalk emerge from a flash of focused acidity. On the palate it is bright and structured with a backbone of minerality supporting rich fruit and a long, creamy finish.
Station Ranch Vineyard, Sonoma Carneros
Night hand-harvested, clusters are then cold-soaked and allowed to ferment slowly over the course of several days. After a gentle pressing, the juice goes into a carefully selected mix of neutral and new French oak barrels. We bottle after 18 months in barrel, then age the wines for an additional year before release.
