"This iconic vineyard (Del Barba Vineyard in Oakley) was planted in the 1800s as a field blend. This old school vineyard is currently dry farmed, un-pruned, and un-sulfured. We did everything in our power not to f-up these timeless grapes. More complex and less fruit driven than past years but there is still that crazy umami and deep fruit. Drink some California history! "
