Vineyard: This exquisite wine is a tapestry woven from grapes sourced from revered vineyard sites across the Sonoma Coast AVA. Predominantly, it hails from the Marine Layer and Dutton-Gravenstein Vineyards in the Sebastopol Hills, capturing the cool fog and vibrant character of the region. Smaller contributions from Whistler and Walala Vineyards in the Annapolis sub-AVA, and Grand Vent and Gap's Crown from the Petaluma Gap, add complexity and depth.

Winemaking: The grapes are meticulously hand-harvested, ensuring only the finest fruit reaches the winery. Each vineyard block is fermented separately, allowing the unique expression of each site to shine through. Gentle whole-cluster fermentation and extended aging in 25% new French oak barriques lend structure and finesse to the wine.

Tasting Notes: Lyra 2021 paints a vivid picture of the Sonoma Coast in your glass. Bright ruby in color, it exudes an intoxicating perfume of violets and wild strawberries, mingled with hints of orange peel, baking spices, and subtle earthiness. The palate is alive with high-toned red fruits, juicy raspberries, and whispers of cardamom and citrus peel. Silky tannins frame the vibrant fruit, leading to a long, elegant finish that lingers with notes of rose and spice.
