Wine Enthusiast, 93 Points 

"This tantalizing bottling starts with a steely focus on the nose of lime pith, wet rocks and apple tonic. The tightly woven palate pops with flavors of chalk, crisp Asian pear and lime peel, riding a zesty acidity deep into the finish." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"This 3-acre vineyard in the heart of the Santa Maria Bench was planted 43 years ago. Situated in a wind-protected swale at the mouth of Tepesquet Canyon, it is named for Dick's great uncle, Ernesto Wickenden. The grapes are hand-harvested grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks for approximately 45-60 days before then aging in neutral French oak for four months. The wine is bright and lively, and displays notes of citrus, pear and melon, with a long clean “minerally” finish." 

Alcohol: 13%
