Santa Cruz Mountains
Bottled August 2017
On the nose the wine has a refreshing salinity and purity reflective of the site’s maritime proximity. The soil is a loamy clay inter mixed with fractured sandstone resulting in a mineral yet richer pallet. The wine is aged on 20% new French oak which gives it a light hint of vanilla and spice tying the fruit together with the barrel. I expect this wine to age for 15-20 years
Regan Vineyard is located in the Corrolitos area of the Santa Cruz Mountains on a south facing slope. The vineyard is owned and farmed by John Bargetto. Planted in 1992, the 50 acre estate sits at an elevation of 450 to 550 feet. Monterey Bay influences combine with clay loam soils to produce wines with minerality and striking acidity.
