Aromas of guava and melon balance with a rich, creamy texture.


A warm, gentle summer heavily influenced this vintage, contributing a soft mid-palate that serves as its distinct characteristic.

Growing Conditions

For complexity, the winemakers sourced fruit from two locations: the high and sunny elevation of Atlas Peak and, closer to sea level, the gentle plains of Carneros, where fog and sea breeze cool the vines each morning.
