Beautiful aromas of white peach, lychee, wet river stones and gardenia dominate the nose. The palate is green apple, lemon curd, and honeysuckle. The finish is both lush and rich and surprisingly refreshing and bright. This will be an amazing food paring wine for sure!

Winemaker Notes

These organically farmed grapes come from a tucked away valley in a small pocket next to the Russian River. They were hand picked and brought to the winery right at daybreak and whole cluster pressed to a stainless steel tank.


The juice slowly fermented cold over the course of 4 months.


100% stainless steel fermented and aged.

Ashley Herzberg

About the Winemaker:

Ashley graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a degree in Chemical Engineering and the intention to go to medical school. After discovering that her passion was not in medicine, she decided to come to Sonoma County and work a harvest in a winery lab. One harvest quickly turned into an all-encompassing passion and love of winemaking with all the science, art, chemistry, engineering and fun behind it!

She started as a Lab Technician at Owl Ridge and then moved to Lab Manager, benefiting from valuable mentoring by some of the top Pinot Noir vintners in California such as Merry Edwards, Greg Lafollette, Anthony Austin and Scot Covington. Because it was a custom-crush facility with over 40 clients at the time, Owl Ridge provided her with the opportunity to gain the perspective and knowledge that would prove invaluable in her career.

In 2007 she became Enologist and then Assistant Winemaker at Mauritson Winery.  She branched out on her own as a consulting winemaker in 2011, making wine for small family owned wineries in Sonoma County.
