The dramatic climate of the Highlands – located within Monterey County – allows us to create dramatic wines. Morning fog, bright sunshine and gusting winds enable longer “hang time” for the grapes, resulting in wines of intense, complex character.
A sunny yellow hue, the 2016 vintage opens with the vibrant scents of lemon blossom and honeysuckle, infused by the warmth of vanilla. The whiff of a sea breeze can be detected on the nose, adding a bright freshness. Rich and lush, the palate features flavors of ripe peach and lemon meringue pie. Lively acidity balances this wine’s creamy roundness. Notes of toasted bread combine with a final kick of acidity to create an evocative, harmonious and refreshing finish.
