Vintage Notes

2021 was slow and steady, with mild temperatures prevailing from bud break to harvest. Mild early season conditions produced a favorable fruit set, and grapes developed steadily without extreme weather. Santa Rita Hills harvest was later this year than most of Santa Barbara; grapes were picked on September 3rd with excellent flavor, color, and acidity.

Winemaking 

The Calera clone took center stage in 2021, comprising two-thirds of the blend.  After destemming and a three-day cold soak, fermentation was done in open-top stainless-steel tanks at a range of warm and cool temperatures. Aged 11 months in 100% French oak with 18% new barrels. 

Wine Profile 

Nose: Aromas of black cherry, red beets, and plums with a spicy mix of savory, earthy lavender and anise notes.

Palate: Medium body, layered and fruit-driven, particularly cherry, pomegranate, and cranberry, with an interesting mineral-driven texture and beautiful balance.
