Winemaker’s Notes:  The Laureles Grade vineyard is situated so far west that it is outside the Carmel Valley AVA so we must call it Monterey County which belies its coastal influence. Planted in calcareous shale, this vineyard perpetually produces minerally, saline driven wine  that exudes flavors of citrus, lychee and a talc like texture of crushed rocks.

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.
