Our Tula Vista vineyard is located just west of the Donum Estate on Ramal road, a few short miles from the Château. We purchased this 70 acre site in 2012. In early 2014 we finished re-establishing the vineyard by planting 29 acres of Chardonnay and 22 acres of Pinot Noir. This site of rolling hills and clay loam soil perched right on the edge of the San Pablo Bay is exposed to tremendous wind and fog, and is guaranteed to offer us an exciting new element of Carneros terroir. 

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The nose presents notes of pomegranate, red rose, bergamot tea, and new leather, balanced by a warm, toasty note from the extended barrel aging. On the palate, a delightful, juicy entry punctuated by baked cherry, plums, and cranberry chutney that leads to a long, polished finish accented by notes of blood orange and molasses cookie. This wine is full of texture and is enjoyable to drink now, and will also reward those who wait.
Vineyard Notes
The 2019 growing season started with saturated soils thanks to abundant winter and spring rains. Cooler weather throughout the summer meant plenty of time for flavors and aromatics to develop, and an early heat spike in August helped push the ample crop of grapes to full maturity, with a harvest date of August 15th. September weather cooled a bit for a more leisurely harvest of our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The wines that resulted are classic in their finesse and balance.
Food Pairing Notes
This is a superior wine for pairing with food, with its versatile flavor profile. It is particularly well suited to dishes with mushrooms or meats, and is a great selection for a holiday table.
