"This bottling from Brack Mountain Wine Company shows butter, sea salt and caramel on the nose, balanced by tangerine and faint jasmine aromas. The wine is elegant and easy to like, with Meyer lemon and prominent-but-not- overpowering honey butter on the palate, and a pink lemonade touch that carries into the finish."
"The Sierra Mar Vineyard, owned and farmed by
Gary Franscioni is one of the highest elevation vineyards in
the Santa Lucia Highlands. The Santa Lucia and Gabilan
Mountain Ranges surround the Salinas Valley and act like a
conduit, directing the winds off the Pacific down the Valley,
cooling the region from warm inland temperatures. The
afternoon winds deliver fog off the Monterey Bay, acting as a
buffer and extending the growing season. The high elevation,
thin soils and arid conditions produce wines of intense
concentration. The Soberanes Vineyard is named for the
family of the original Spanish land grant. It is situated on a
small terrace adjacent to the famous Garys’ Vineyard.
Planted in 2007, Soberanes has thirty-eight acres of Pinot
Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah. It has an Eastern exposure and
sits on classic alluvial sandy loam soil.
The 2014 vintage offered excellent growing conditions. A mild winter and spring compounded with almost no rain contributed to early ripening, low to moderate yields and highly concentrated grapes resulting in exceptional quality. 2014 is one of the earliest vintages we’ve seen in over a decade, but it will also go down as one of the best." - Winery
