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