This wine is a blend of Rancho Sisquoc, Bien Nacido and Rancho Ontiveros Vineyard, all located in the Santa Maria Valley. Each block is vinified separately with partial whole cluster, native yeast and is pressed based on taste. Picking decisions are based on acidity and flavor, with no additions other than minimal sulfur during elevage. The cuvee is aged in all neutral oak barrels for 10 months. This wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered. Made as a natural wine. The nose is quite pretty and red fruited with fresh raspberry, bing cherry, cranberry, a light black tea and oak note and turned earth. The palate is lively with red fruits and some hints of earth.
