Vineyard Notes:
This spectacular vineyard sits along the Laguna Ridge at the edge of the Green Valley AVA. Meticulously farmed and planted at a very high density of 2420 vines per acre, the vineyard is planted to Dijon clone 548 and 95. Once a spectacular apple orchard, we pay homage to the Martinelli Family and the history of the site by naming the wine “La Pommeraie” – French for apple orchard.

Production Notes:
Whole cluster pressed, indigenous yeast fermentation in French oak barrels, weekly battonage and extended aging of 16 months on lees in 44% new French Oak has produced a wine with exceptional complexity.
