An intensely aromatic wine with notes vibrant red cherry and earthy mushrooms, followed by hints of bay leaf and black pepper. The complexity continues on the palate with flavors of fresh handpicked cherries, hints of vanilla and a toasty oak finish.
Our 146-acre certified sustainable Lone Oak Vineyard sits at the northern end of the Santa Lucia Highlands where it is cooled by ocean breezes from the Monterey Bay. Morning fog lingers here while the wind picks up in the afternoon, leading to a long, cool growing season that allows grapes to slowly develop flavor and concentration. With gentle, east-facing slopes and elevations between 180 and 500 feet, the vineyard’s ancient alluvial soils assure excellent drainage.
