Production Notes
Our 400-acre estate is located beyond the mountains north of the town of Santa Barbara in the Santa Ynez Valley. The climate here ranges from cool in the western areas nearer the ocean to warm in the east where the higher ground and coastal hills offer protection from the cold maritime winds. In addition to being 26 miles from the ocean, our vineyards sit nearly 1,000 feet above sea level, putting them well above the morning fog that regularly blankets lower lying sites. The additional hours of sunshine coupled with our extremely long growing season make this an exceptional wine producing region.

One of the factors that makes Proximity 26 so distinct is its unique varietal composition. Our estate produces exceptional Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Consequently, they formed the base of this wine. Small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Malbec were included to supplement depth, structure and complexity. After harvest, the grapes were fermented in small bins using native and cultured yeast strains. Aging took place in 76% new French oak barrels for the 32 months. The balance was aged in 2-year French oak to add a brightness and softness to the final blend.
