Grenache: Camp 4 Vineyard in Santa Ynez is a very warm climate vineyard, offering fruit, supple texture and very approachable mouth feel. Portico Hills Vineyard in Los Alamos is cool climate with a north facing aspect. This brings lifted aromatics, florality and mineral purity.

Syrah: Watch Hill Vineyard in Los Alamos offers concentration in both fruit and color. Its rugged, up front tannin, brings a touch of serious structure to the blend. Portico Hills Vineyard adds deep violet color, carrying spice driven aromatics and blue fruit flavors.

Mourvèdre: Estelle Vineyard in Santa Ynez is warm climate on an East-facing hillside. Capturing the early morning sun, this parcel is perfect for late ripening varietals such as Mourvèdre. Rustic, nutty and tannic… this Mourvèdre imparts a subtle savoriness to facilitate in grounding the blend. Martian Ranch Vineyard is nestled in Los Alamos. A cooler site for Mourvedre, this component sees the longest hang time on the vine, adding complex orange rind and Fernet nuance and a bit of rigid structure.
