WSI93 Dark cherry and dried cranberry give way to a dense, mouth- watering minerality and fruit driven mid-palate with a long-lasting finish of elegant tannins. The La Cruz Vineyard is planted on mineral-rich clay soils left behind as the remanence of ancient sea beds. Very tight row spacing creates competition between the vines for nutrients. This results in low yields and intense fruit flavors. The La Cruz Vineyard tends to wake up under a blanket of cool fog, which is then pushed out to sea by the ever-present winds of the Petaluma Gap. These winds roar through the Petaluma Gap, past Keller Estate and out to the San Pablo Bay, leaving warm sunshine in their wake. This combination of fog, wind, and sunshine create a microclimate that is unique to our area.
