Aromas of Meyer lemon and

Mandarin orange and pear, with a clean and crisp acidity on the
The grapes for this vintage were sourced from three
different vineyards in Lake County. We harvested 78% of the grapes
in Elk Mountain Vineyard at a fairly low Brix (sugar) level, which
provided the steely backbone and crisp acidity of the wine. 13% of
the grapes were harvested in Luchsinger Vineyard at a ripe 25 Brix,
and the grapes had seen plenty of sunshine throughout the season.
This brought a lush, tropical quality to the blend. The remaining
nine percent of the blend was harvested in Michael’s Vineyard on
Six Sigma Ranch, on gently sloping hills with a complex mix of
soils and aspects.
The grapes were pressed with minimal oxygen contact,
and the resulting juice was cold-settled for 36 hours before being
racked. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at low
temperature. The wine was kept on its lees until a light fining and
filtration was carried out to prepare it for bottling. Three
percent of the wine was aged in a second-use barrel.
