This pale lemon colored wine is expressly aromatic yet balanced with layers of structure and complexity. Initial aromatics show hints of passion fruit and guava, jalapeno, gooseberry, honeydew melon, and lemongrass. The acidity cuts through a collection of grapefruit and bell pepper that leaves your palate coated with an uplifting minerality. The creamy texture is derived from months of lees aging, providing this elegant wine with a touch of power and length both in the nose and palate. The layers of lychee and floral perfume are blanketed by a complex long finish.

“Abalone Shell” in the native Chumash language of Samala.
This southern Rhone style blend of Marsanne, Roussanne, and Grenache Blanc highlights bright aromatics of zesty citrus, Asian pear, and honeysuckle with hints of chamomile and white peach. The mid-palate is a perfect balance of acidity, oily minerality, and rich creamy flavors. On the palate this wine shows a dynamic contrast of salinity mixed with bright acidity that showcases the layers of vanilla bean, white orchid, beeswax, and stone fruits. The freshness and intricacies from lees aging provides a depth through the entire finish.
