The Vanguard wines are Sultry, Opulent and Fruit Driven. Sourced from blocks on the long rolling hills, slightly more protected from the wind give us an opulent and richly-textured style of wine. Wine made from grapes grown on these sites take a larger portion of new French oak, and in the end, are more supple and soft. The Hilt is inspired by a single place: Rancho Salsipuedes in the Sta. Rita Hills AVA and its distinctive vineyards, Bentrock, Radian and Puerta del Mar.
Tightly coiled and tense at first. Slowly and steadily hinting at the incredible power and concentration in the glass.
Orange blossom, beeswax, gunflint, marzipan and Meyer lemon. Precise and powerful on the palate. A solid core of citrus fruit, almond and loquat. A touch of toasted oak. Fresh and light as a feather on the long finish. A hint of malolactic softness and roundness. Pure with everything in its right place and all senses elevated to a higher level.
