Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A wine that invokes days spent backpacking through Big Sur, a rustic nose of lavender, cypress, juniper berries, hewn lumber and washed linen leads to an oily palate; full of orange blossom, lychee white tea, and a custom trail mix: macadamia nuts, candied ginger, dried passion fruit and salted almonds. It closes out the palate with a heady coating of thyme and beeswax, and resolves on generous acidity with minerality suggesting dry seabed soils, stirred up under foot.
