The varietals for this white Rhône-style blend were sourced from small, family-run vineyards on the westside of Paso Robles. Grapes are grown in primarily calcareous soils with moderate to strong maritime influences from the Pacific Ocean, tempering the hot summer days, creating lovely minerality and preserving lively acid. The wine ferments in 50% new French oak and ages sur lie, adding to its luxurious mouthfeel and layered complexity.
