The Story

The vines grow on the windy hills of the Rock Hollow estate, planted in the hills behind Alamo Pintado Rd, in the Los Olivos District AVA. Over the last few years, more Petite was grafted on top of the aging Cab Franc vines. But, for now, the producing land only adds up to 1.1 acres of grapes, yielding precious little wine. We are crazy proud of this release. The wine is truly impossibly dark, the color of a moonless night. Despite the darkness, the wine is also very well balanced and nuanced. Though the wine might taste ready to enjoy tonight, it will continue to benefit from several more years in the bottle.

Brand Story

These wines have been works-in-progress for a decade or more. These new releases rank amongst the smallest production wines that I have ever released. They are all Estate Grown & crafted with the utmost care & precision. They truly represent the best that we can do. No expense was spared in the farming or crafting of these wines. We cherry-picked the best blocks & restricted yields with the singular goal of harvesting the very best fruit. We took our winemaking efforts to the next level…we took it to 11. We double sorted the grapes to ensure only the best berries made it into our fermenters. We aged the wines exclusively in French Oak to ensure immense pleasure upon release. The wines are rich & decadent, yet balanced, pure & varietally correct.
