Sonoma CoastDuMOL Kearney Estate Vineyard

This is an exceptional site among our four Green Valley parcels. This plateau features iron-rich Altamont soils that are naturally very well balanced. With a beautiful equilibrium between sand and clay, the vines are very self-regulating so we do very little manipulation in the field. The resulting fruit is ideally balanced and, given our extremely high density planting, incredibly concentrated and complex.
