VINEYARD NOTES:

Seven miles from the Pacific Coast and 1,250 feet in elevation on a ridge overlooking Carmel Valley, the Laureles Grade parcel offers fruit as stunning as the location is breathtaking. Meticulous farming, a unique microclimate, and calcareous shale soils result in low yields of exceptionally high quality fruit from this picturesque vineyard.

VINTAGE NOTES:

The 2012 vintage was a welcome relief following the challenges of 2010 and 2011. A wet winter was balanced by a moderate, slightly dry spring, with bud break and veraison occurring several weeks later than usual. Bestowing optimal conditions for slow, even ripening, a long Indian summer extended into early October. Harvest commenced approximately two weeks later than previous years, and was condensed into a few short weeks, with all of our fruit in by November 1.
