Appellation: Sta. Rita Hills AVA
Aging: 9 months in French oak, 25% new

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"Focused and minerally tasting, with subtle toasty notes to the pear tart, baked apple and dried tropical fruit flavors, supported by fresh acidity. Offers a long, spicy finish. Drink now through 2022. 7,498 cases made." -KM, 3/31/19

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Smoked hazelnut and rich oak aromas are cut by whiffs of lemon rind, citrus spray, chalk and Asian pear on the nose of this appellation blend. The palate offers both sharp citrus and rounded apple flavors." -MK, 2/1/19
