The Lawler Ranch vineyard is located on Ramal Road just east of our Tula Vista vineyard. The eastern facing slopes were originally planted in 1990, and then grafted to Dijon Clones in 2004. The defining feature of this wine is its savory character. Leaping from the glass are notes of sassafras, rose petal, and boysenberry. The 2017 uses the Pommard clone (50%) for the blend’s foundation. It marries well with the Dijon 667 (50%) which adds depth and structure. This wine exudes youthful exuberance and energy. It is delicious now, but one need not be overly optimistic to see the aging potential.
