This wine is the result of traditional methods, one great vineyard, and a love for Old World wines. A refined wine, exemplifying poise and elegance. It showcases not only the purity of fruit that can be found in Santa Maria, but also the alluring baking spice and black tea notes that the Santa Maria Valley is known for.
