This beautiful wine is a blend of several vineyards in the North Coast with the majority of the fruit harvested from the prestigious Red Hills appellation of Lake County which is located on the northern edge of the Mayacamas Range. With elevations ranging from 1,350 to 2,600 feet, the grapes are grown in mountain climate conditions allowing for good acid retention during ripening. Grapes were also harvested from the Dry Creek Vineyard located in Sonoma as well as a splash of fruit from Mendocino. The wine was fermented in neutral French oak barrels to maximize higher aromatics and pressed off at dryness capturing the freshness and vibrancy of the wine.
