Soberanes Vineyard, once a Mexican Land grant to the Soberanes family during the mid-1700s, is a piece of California history. Located in the Santa Lucia Highlands, known for growing conditions unlike any other region in California, the site’s swift afternoon ocean breezes develop fruit with cool, fresh acidity.
2015 was a unique vintage. The vines budded out early, set a moderate crop and began veraison earlier than usual in late June through early July. Due to prolonged sunny days pushing flavor maturity, fruit was ready for picking a short 30 days after coloring. Harvest began in the middle of August, with sugar and acid in perfect balance. The resulting wines are distinct in their character and complexity.
