This is mountain fruit grown a few miles from the Pacific, among the majestic Redwoods and wildlife in the Potato Patch Block at the remote Perli Vineyards. Steve Alden meticulously farms this new project in soils that contain more rock than dirt and heart thumping slopes of 60+%. The resulting wine boasts an energy and backbone worthy of vines that see as many bears as humans.

Tasting Note: Juicy green apple, a squeeze of Meyer lemon, and a saltiness that we can’t quite place except to describe that tension in the air on a foggy coastal day. The glass evolves with eye opening acidity, and citrus profiles of lemon zest, and buddhas hand. The savory identity is balanced well with tart kumquat flavors and orange zest, with just a touch of crunchy honeydew.
