Production Notes
Over the past two decades the Santa Ynez Valley has emerged as one of the most celebrated winegrowing regions in California. Formed by the Purisima Hills and San Rafael Mountains to the north and the Santa Ynez Mountains to the south, it is the largest AVA in Santa Barbara County. The cool, western portion of SYV is well suited to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The warmer eastern section is home to aromatic whites such as Viognier, Rousanne Marsanne, and Sauvignon Blanc and bold reds including Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
Vineyard Notes
The 2014 vintage was another dry year, with a mild winter that set the stage for an earlier than average start to harvest. The warm weather continued after winter, but with few heat spikes for a consistent spring and summer. Overall, the fruit was high in quality and quantity, with small berry sizes producing concentrated, more intense flavors.
