A blend of Carignan and Mourvedre from 135-year-old vines in Oakley, CA. Oakley, a suburban town nestled where the San Francisco Bay meets the Sacramento River Delta is a terroir in transition, featuring ancient vines alongside modern housing developments. The clay loam soil vineyard produces grapes with sophisticated freshness and bright acidity. Because of the strong winds that come off the Sacramento Delta, the warm summer days cool off dramatically at night, allowing for more evenly ripened fruit. Made by the winemaking duo of Aaron Pott and Kyle Mizuno. In farming and winemaking, Aaron and Kyle strive to communicate a vineyard’s sense of place--by working the wine at the right time to expose the best characteristics of variety and site. Enticing aromas of white peach, orange zest, acacia flower and sugar cookies on the nose. Peach, melon, and guava delight the mid-palate with wonderfully bright acidity. A soft, silky finish of plum, brown sugar and melon.
