Vintage Notes
2016 was another near perfect growing season with idyllic weather throughout the year. Harvest was a bit earlier than usual, and yields were balanced. Most importantly, the quality of fruit was once again impressive, marked by complex aromatics and flavors. Another stellar vintage for the North Coast.

Vineyard Notes
Sourced from a variety of vineyards throughout the North Coast, each selected for their high-quality fruit and unique flavor and aromatic characteristics they lend to the blend.

Tasting Notes
On the nose we note orange marmalade, candied ginger and white peach. The palate unfolds with juicy nectarine flavors, bright acidity and slate-like minerality. The expansive finish gets a lift from lemon and tangerine citrus notes.

About This Wine
A white wine complement to our ever-popular Mixed Blacks. When immigrants first settled in California, they brought with them cuttings from their villages and planted what would later become known as field blends. Harvested and blended together, they were common before the rise of single varietal wines. Much harder to find today, they are our tribute to a California winemaking tradition.
