Not only is the Sebastiano Vineyard an impressive site for growing exquisitely textured and minerally Chardonnay, it is also well-suited for producing beautiful cold-climate Syrah. Planted in 2007 for Sashi Moorman, this is the highest elevation Syrah vineyard
in the Sta. Rita Hills and is on clay and limestone soils that are entirely exposed to the brutal ocean winds. While very different climatically from the Northern Rhône regions of Cornas and Crozes-Hermitage, the cold and windy climatic conditions are similar.

When Syrah is grown in a cold extreme place like this, it becomes extremely aromatic with purple flowers, briary fruit, black pepper and black olive nuances. In our case, these gorgeous aromatics are further accentuated because the wine was fermented 100% wild yeast, entirely as whole-cluster in 4-ton concrete fermenters, and then aged for almost two years in a 581 gallon neutral Foudre – none of which are common practices in the U.S. The results are serious with incredible complexity and yet the wine remains fresh, supple and delicious on the palate with at least a decade of life ahead of it. Syrah is going through a renaissance in California because it is finally being planted in the right places and approached traditionally in the cellar by Winemakers like Sashi, who were weaned on the compelling wines from the Northern Rhône. 100% whole-cluster. Fermented 100% native yeast in concrete cask. 18 months in neutral Foudre. 595 Cases. 13.7% alcohol. Earthier and heavier than previous vintages, this is a Syrah that gives homage to both its Northern Rhône inspiration and its Californian roots. A bright ruby/ purple color with moderate acidity and heavy tannins, with dark, earthy, and mildly floral notes of creosote bush and sage—the garrigue of the Sta. Rita Hills. A complex aromatic mixture of leather, tobacco, grilled meats, smoke, black pepper, and cherries transmutes on the palate to a balanced but to be defined impressions of dark berries, spices, cocoa, and herbs. A beautifully structured wine that will continue to deepen and refine its expression of self over the next 10+ years.

Our Estate Chardonnay is a massale planting (a field blend) of six different clonal selections naturally creating a wide diversity of flavor and nuance, and are from vines grown in a mixture of clay and diatomaceous soils. These oceanic fossils (diatoms) provide a fascinating mineral and saline thread to the wine while also stressing the vines. When you add these growing conditions to our north-facing vines that receive less sunlight, you create ideal circumstances for growing and producing exceptional Chardonnay.

The Sta. Rita Hills region delivers some of the finest examples of Chardonnay in California because our climate is like “refrigerated-sunlight”. This results from the bright sunshine we enjoy throughout the growing season, competing against the cold winds coming from the Pacific Ocean. It is this dichotomy that creates beautiful Chardonnay that has a citrus freshness and richer flavor akin to something more decadent like a mix of Meyer Lemon, Yuzu and Lemon dessert. During vinification, we approach the wine with a conservative yet strategic use of new French oak and no lees-stirring. Combined together, we feel our farming and cellar approach produces magical white wines, which are profound, thought-provoking, age-worthy (7-15 years), minerally and food-friendly. 100% native yeast. Barrel fermented and aged in 25% new French oak puncheons for 16 months. Full ML and no bâtonnage. 432 cases. 13.1% alcohol. A pale white gold color with delicate citrus aromas of citrus blossoms, lemon curd and candied lemon rind along with a richer perfume of vanilla, butterscotch and apples. It is tart but smooth on the palate with bright, focused acidity that is balanced by brininess and restrained notes of tropical and stone fruit flavors, and an underlying river rock minerality. Full and complete on the palate, this wine will compliment a wide variety of dishes and will cellar well for many years

This is our fourth bottling of ROSA, coming from only a 2.8 acre vineyard block, and demonstrates how enjoyable Chardonnay really can be when grown and approached correctly. To us, there is no argument for why Chardonnay often remains one of the most expensive and celebrated wines in the world. The fruit for ROSA always yields an exotic and highly aromatic wine due to its north-facing exposure (less sunlight), and planting on three different types of ocean based soils (Calcareous, Diatomaceous and Limestone), mixed in with our heavier clay. Because of the fruit’s striking intensity, our team feels this wine can benefit from more time, in more new oak, which only increases the wine’s fullness, richness and age-ability (7+ years). Barrel fermented in 100% new French 581 gallon Foudre (10 times the size of a normal barrel) with 16 months elevage. Full ML and no battonage. 475 cases. 13.5% alcohol. Yellow-gold color with aromas of exotic lime, yellow pit fruit, white chocolate and hay. A fresh and lively palate mixed with a rich, mouth-filling decadence and concentration. Long-lived.

This wine represents the essence of our organically farmed vineyards with grapes sourced from every block, consisting of multiple orientations, all of which are on rich clay soils and includes the nine different selections we have planted. It is blended as an approachable, generous wine and intended to over-deliver for its price. At the same time though it retains the seriousness of its underlying terroir with great elegance, depth and character. The 2018 vintage follows in a string of several high quality vintages going back to 2015. Lower yields created by small clusters produced very concentrated and flavorful fruit. 2018 reminds us of the elegance seen in 2016 combined with the richness and depth of 2017. This wine will easily age for 5+ years and will continue to evolve and take on greater complexity as it ages. 100% native yeast. 20% whole-cluster fermented in concrete. Aged 14 months in 25% French oak. 544 cases. 13.1% alcohol. This is a beautiful, refined vintage of our Estate Pinot Noir. Rich aromas of dried cherries, earth, baking spices, sandalwood and hibiscus meld on the palate with notes of black currant, elderberry, raspberry, vanilla, chocolate, and shiso. This medium-bodied wine has great acidity and tannins, and the balance of fruit, floral, and woody notes are complimented by a smooth mouth-feel and lingering finish. Drink now - 2030.
