Pure, sinuous and bracingly fresh with a firm backbone to carry its bright and true fruit core well into the next decade.

The fruit was hand-picked and destemmed for fermentation. The must underwent pigeage and/or punchdowns twice daily. Fermentation lasted 14 days before being pressed to neutral barrels. The wine was racked off its lees after 8 months and saw a total of 9 months élévage. Bottled unfined & unfiltered.

Poor Ranch Vineyard lies just outside of Hopland in Mendocino County, on an east-facing hillside made up of volcanic stones and sandy clay soil. From 65-year-old vines.
