Winemaker Notes: "Our 4.8 Sea Field Vineyard (monopole) produces our most elegant wines year in and year out. This unique bottling coming from an ancient Sea Field of diverse marine soils and fractured bedrock dating back between 66 and 200 million years. Soaring 1,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean less than 2 miles from its waters Sea Field is both our most coastal and highest elevation site. The combination of these elements creates Sea Field.
Sea Field is pure elegance. Rose petal, white tea, blood orange pith and the edge of a coastal forest meeting wet rocks fill the bowl. Crushed raspberry, wild strawberry, sea moss, exotic spice, coastal chanterelles, rhubarb and floral tones linger on your palate with a seemingly everlasting finish."
