Tasting Note

The 2019 growing season was exceptional for Mt. Carmel - the vineyard achieved ideal ripeness, and the year was very windy, which produced an extremely structured wine. With expressive and complex fruit, earthy aromatics, and profound bramble notes, it is positively vibrant. The harmonious palate highlights the grand energy and depth, embodying the character of Sta. Rita Hills. This wine is unapologetically delicious. - winery notes

Planted in 1989, on steep and rugged land surrounding an abandoned Carmelite monastery, Mt. Carmel was one of the first vineyards planted in the Sta. Rita Hills appellation. Primarily dry-farmed, Mt. Carmel is extremely cool and windy. This, combined with exceptional Botella clay and Diatomaceous earth soils, produces a wine that is as intricate and dynamic as it is alluring.
