Vista is our largest block, western facing. Vista also grows from St. George rootstock and is also head pruned. The topography of this vineyard has rock, and gravelly loam, with multiple soil types. The wines tend to have a sun ripened powerful fruit and a rich mouth feel. Expect the taste of blackberry, plum, strawberry and chocolate bouquet. With a fruit forward flavor, the wine has a long finish and muscular mouth feel. This wine will age 5 to 10 years. This wine matches very well with red pasta, BBQ pork, grilled steaks and mushrooms, or pasta carbonara. Serve cool, open to breathe, or decant and enjoy.
