This vineyard is in the Templeton Gap District, which is known for its alluvial soil and river rock. This type of soil creates vineyards that are very lush and aromatic. Our Broken Road has notes of apricots and nectarines with some honeydew melon. White flowers and jasmine with tropical fruit show through on the palate. Wet stone and river rock minerality balance the lush fruit. Drink now or over the next 3-4 years.
