Growing conditions in 2010, particularly in the Central Coast, produced a wine that's exceptional despite its young age. Throw in the seasoned touch of famed winemaker Alan Phillips and you get a wine that displays bright fruit, soft tannins and crisp acid.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Blackberry, cranberry and dried herbs; easy tannins and crisp acidity
Vineyard Notes
The vineyard lies at the southern end of the Santa Maria Valley and is graced with gentle hillside slopes, sandy loam soils and western exposures. Just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, this lauded vineyard regularly experiences cooling Pacific Ocean fog and breezes. This phenomenon favors crisp acidity and gentle ripening in classic Burgundian Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes.

Medium light cherry-berry reflecting its young age, but a silky smoothness totally at odds with its youngness. Probably not a cellar keeper, but it sure is good now. Had a patio BBQ tonight and the 3L was devoured. Just ordered 6L more.

This wine is fantastic!! It is fairly light and very easy to drink with or without food. Everyone that I shared it with (wine lovers and wine novices alike) absolutely loved it, which is why I had to order 3L more. I'm keeping the next 3L to myself!
