Their approach to winegrowing is rooted in the earth and refined by hand. Great wines are grown, not made so  they farm organically, harvest by hand, ferment with native yeast, avoid filtering and fining and use minimal sulfur.  Ocean  breezes,  rocky soils, mountainous  terrain establish the  Santa Cruz and Gabilan Mountains as  exceptional winegrowing terroir. 

The dominant percentage of Grenache expresses itself on the nose with bright bing cherries, while the other varietals come through as notes of earthy black fruit and hints of roasted herbs. On the palate the wine is lively and palate coating with nice fine grained, chewy tannins. Red fruits take front and center at first, then give way to more black fruit and crushed rocks. The finish is long and mouthwatering. With air, sweet smelling crushed flowers and mulberry emerge on the nose. The moderate alcohol level and good acidity make this a great food wine and one that is likely to age exceptionally well, however, it is very approachable.
