Limited Availability

Bright, focused and wonderfully energetic!  Earthy notes of cherry bark, black raspberry, and cola nut, with touches of sweet clove and orange zest.  Fresh pomegranate juice with herbaceous notes of spearmint, evergreen and a subtle hint of lemon verbena, flanked by racy acidity, refined tannins and a subtle salinity.  With its highly structured tannins, this wine sets itself apart with a leaner core of focused acidity, earthiness, raw herbaceous character and silky finish.

Savory, balanced, silky layers, focused acidity.

Located in the high stony slopes of the coastal side of the Santa Cruz Mountains in the heart of Bonny Doon. Attentively farmed by Jim Beauregard and his family, these are steep hillside vineyards that enjoy morning and evening fog from the San Francisco Bay.


From start to finish, 2018 was a very steady season, offering weather that was reminiscent of years prior to drought. Higher than average yields and excellent quality brought about a fruitful harvest beginning in late August.


Fermented separately in small open-top fermenters with gentle punch-downs. Maintained at moderate temperatures until dry, basket-pressed, and racked to 40% new French oak barrels for 14 months.
