Located in the Arroyo Seco appellation, Ste. Philippe Vineyard sits in a dry riverbed with sandy loam soils, perfect for growing Merlot, the base of this blend. Petite Sirah, considered the “backbone” by Winemaker Paul Clifton, is sourced from two AVAs – Arroyo Seco and San Antonio Valley – both warmer growing regions where temperatures foster thick skin and intense structure development. Rounding out the wine, Malbec is sourced from our Hook Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands, while the Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in the San Antonio Valley.
