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 2013 vintage offered a variety of conditions. A rather dry January gave way to normal winter rainfall. As warmer weather arrived, bud break occurred in early April. Following a moderate summer, the first week of September brought very warm weather, along with a corresponding rise in sugar and malic acid levels. We picked our fruit as quickly as possible. Our 2013 wines display appealing texture and suppleness due to marginally higher pH levels.
