Tenth Stop

Vintage Notes

The fourth year of continuous drought caught up with many vineyards, shrinking yields in 2015 and causing water stress in many vines. Tiny clusters sometimes clocked in at 10% the weight of normal. However, the natural consequence of such a low yield is an amazing concentration of flavors.

Winemaker Notes

This is our newest bottling and there’s a reason for it. Named as an homage to the town where we all grew up, Occidental served as the tenth stop on the North Pacific Coast Railroad. Bright, texture-driven with slight hints of tropical fruit, citrus peel and mineral. Its brightness is rounded by a smooth mouthfeel and delicious weight. Incredibly focused and drinking beautifully, this wine will age and mature elegantly.
