Rita’s Crown vineyard is simply a stunning vineyard site, located at the highest elevation in the area, hence the “Crown of Santa Rita”. Planted at 600 to 1000 feet, Rita’s Crown is pure diatomaceous soils, which are fossilized seashells and hallmarks of the appellation. This soil creates a mineral thread in the wines while also adding more stress and concentrating the fruit flavors. Furthermore because of its high pitch, this site receives an extraordinary amount of ocean wind further intensifying the fruit.

Tasting Notes
This wine has been much more opulent in the past two vintages. Even with the summer experiencing more mild temperatures than normal, this wine has a dense and concentrated core while maintaining its vibrant acidity.
