See wine details

Release Letter:

A thousand feet above the town of Sonoma, in a 2.5-acre clearing surrounded by oaks, laurel bay and coyote brush, lies Alta Vista Vineyard. In the spring the ground is strewn with chamomile and the 1/3rd mile path to reach it crosses streams scented with California’s distinct member of the mint family, Yerba Buena (Mentha spicata). This vineyard encapsulates almost all of my scent memories of childhood, and the wine that comes from its 1940s-planted vines is as indelible, vivid and perfumed as the place. Mountain acid makes for a buoyant and elegant organoleptic landscape full of florals and spice. We understand some skepticism when it comes to Gewürz (we have it too), but this wine is one of the most versatile food wines we make and proves that it is a variety that was meant to be planted on Mt. Veeder. The hills of Sonoma Valley in a bottle.
