The grapes for this wine were grown in the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County, which sits on a gravelly alluvial plain beneath the Santa Lucia mountain range. Cool winds from Monterey Bay ensure gradual ripening and development of vibrant flavors. The rocky soils allow excellent drainage, enhancing intensity and promoting balanced ripeness and acidity.
This wine’s bouquet charms with scents of bright cherry, blackberry, blueberry and violet tones. On the palate, soft mouth feel complements flavors recalling dark berry fruits and spice. Supple tannins and a dash of acidity end in a beautifully balanced, clean finish.
From the Arroyo Seco AVA and Santa Lucia Highlands AVA in Monterrey County
