This grows at the westernmost blocks of Lester and Linda Schwartz's vineyard, on coastal ridges less than a mile from the Pacific. Powered by coastal energy, this is musky and intense. Its skin tannins bring to mind cranberries and blackberries, with the high-toned lift of roses. It's enriched by the tannins of new oak, big in scale and lasting in flavor, a wine that would stand its ground in the wind on the beach as you grill wild salmon.

Stemmy and earthy in forest floor, this memorably balanced, elegant and coastal wine shows a wealth of tangy red fruit, a mix of plum and wild strawberry. Sultry and seamless on the palate, the tannins are silky and well-integrated, exhibiting a graceful, high-toned freshness. - Virginie Boone, August 2021.
