Peter Cargassachi of Point Concepción Wines
Today, in Part two of our five part roundtable, Rick Longoria, Peter Cargasacchi and Wes Hagen discuss: regional terroir – is there one, or is the region just too young. Also, more about ripeness and balance, and how this is affected by wine critics, along with an assessment of the heat spikes during the 2004 vintage.
A few facts: the geography of this part of California is quite unique – the region is the only area on the Pacific Coast of North America with transverse, or east to west, mountain ranges. Adding further to the distinction of the Santa Rita Hills AVA, an ocean fog penetrates up to, and often past, the eastern end of the appellation, just outside the town of Buellton.
