Our first vintage of Chardonnay produced from this 2500 foot elevation vineyard in Knights Valley. The Chardonnay has eastern exposure - the only block on this site with that orientation. Aromas exhibiting notes of tropical fruit, bananas, and subtle oak and a creamy sensation follow with slight acidity and excellent texture which resonates as a rich wine. The combination of native yeasts and inoculated yeasts have created a wine with great complexity and length in the finish.

“The desire to produce a high elevation Chardonnay that would be unique and atypical of California producers, was always a goal from this special site."
