Blanche is a dry version of Chenin Blanc that we produce from the old vines at Curtis, or ‘Jurassic Park’ vineyard.  The fruit is green apples, the oak and lees stirring add some creamy vanilla textures, and the acid is fresh and zingy.  Chenin is going through a bit of a moment right now, but we have been in these rows since 2010, like before it was cool.  I can tell you too, that the oldest versions (‘10, and ‘11) are drinking so damn good right now, so if you like cellaring whites, this is one for the wine fridge.

This is our first bottling of Pinot Noir from the Kick On Ranch, where weíve been making Riesling for many years.  We signed a contract to take a little acreage from the block that adjoins the Riesling.  As you know from our Bright White, Kick On is a vineyard that is cool and windy, and the wines hold on to acid and vibrant flavors.  This Pinot has crazy complex smokey and earthy aromatics with a juicy cherry / berry palate.  Itís full of flavor while it maintains balance, freshenss, and class.

Rita's Crown is a vineyard that is located at the highest elevation in the Santa Rita Hills, hence the “Crown of Santa Rita”.  It sits above Seasmoke and Mt. Carmel vineyards on the south facing side of Santa Rosa Road.

Our rows are Pinot Noir, Clone 115, planted at the highest elevation, of the highest vineyard - about 1000 feet. Rita’s Crown Vineyard, and specifically our rows, sit on a bed of diatomaceous soils (fossilized seashells).  These soils creates a mineral note in the wines while also adding more stress and concentrating the fruit flavors.  The ancient seabed soils are large part of what makes Santa Rita Hills so special.

Also, because of its high elevation, and steep slope, this site receives an extraordinary amount of ocean wind which reduces the yields to less than 1.5 tons per acre, making super-intense fruit. Our rows are south facing receiving ample sun producing a ripe and juicy style of Pinot.

The hand-picked grapes were picked at night and fermented with about 25% whole clusters to add tannin structure and aromatic complexity.  The wine was aged for 11 months in 2 year old and older French oak barrels and never racked before bottling in September of 2012.  

We produced 3 barrels of this wine.

Fox Family Vineyard is an organically farmed, tiny, 5 acre ranch on a south-facing, rocky hillside in Los Olivos.  The vineyard is farmed by entirely by hand, including hand hoeing under vines and applying sprays with a backpack.

Blair Fox, who I worked with at Fess Parker, helped his parents plant the vineyard and continues to farm it with John Belfy of Buona Terra Farming.  Blair is the only other producer who makes grenache from this vineyard.

Fox Family is a young vineyard, but is already showing strong terroir.  It is a coolish site with great drainage that produces intense and concentrated fruit.  When young, the tannins are firm and blocky, but this is what will make this wine age so wonderfully.  The aromatics are exotic and spicy, yet floral and pure.
