From the winemaker, "This wine comes from Buttonwood Vineyard in Los Olivos District AVA. I was attracted to this vineyard because it has a lot of similarities to Ibarra-Young. It’s old, its own-rooted, it has gently sloping alluvial floodplain soils, and it shares the same climate. This vineyard was planted in the early 80s and has been farmed organically for several years.

Delicate, salty, zesty. Refreshing like a spring creek high up in the mountains."
