Other Info:
Located at over 2200 feet in the Gabilan Mountains with a commanding view of the Salinas Valley and Monterey Bay. Syrah, Grenache, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are sourced from this exceptional vineyard planted on decomposed granite and veins of limestone. In many respects including soils and elevation, this vineyard is nearly identical to those of Calera's famous Mt. Harlan vineyards just a few miles to the North. Owner John Allen farms the vineyard organically and follows our direction with respect to keeping yields down and managing the canopy for the highest quality.

The aromatics of this Coastview Chardonnay are flamboyantly floral and varietal with a backbone of minerality. White and yellow flowers, hints of poached pear and crushed rocks dominate with distinctly saline notes. On the palate, the wine is dense and concentrated with vibrant acidity that keeps it fresh and lively. Pear and white stone fruit persist on the long and lingering finish. This is one of those wines that does not remain in one's glass for long - delicious wine.
