Our Dryhole vineyard in the Monterey mountains is planted on a north-south axis to allow for more sunlight during the cool, coastal growing period. The temperature reduction that occurs into the night and throughout the morning allows for a longer growing season, ultimately providing the crop additional time to develop even ripeness and bold flavor. The extraction of color and tannins throughout the primary fermentation help richen the wine for the 12-month oak barrel
