"The grapes for this wine were grown on a sunny knoll atop Rider Ridge in the historic Jarvis-district of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Overlooking the waters of Monterey Bay in the far off distance, this southwest-facing vineyard enjoys hours of warm sunshine each day and in the evening refreshes with the cooling that comes of its mountain elevation at 1050 ft. This cooling allows the grapes to retain natural acidity while developing rich, full varietal character owing to extended vine time. The vineyard soil is comprised of a rocky, clay loam flecked with chert in which the vines must struggle to access water and to spread their roots resulting in low yields packed with flavor."
