Sourced from one of the
most prized vineyards!
Los Alamos Valley is just off the 101 freeway between
the Santa Maria Valley and Santa Ynez Valley appellations of Santa Barbara
County, California. The area within the valley has a temperate climate all its
own - ten degrees cooler than Santa Ynez Valley to the south; and ten degrees
warmer than Santa Maria Valley to the north-east. In like manner to those two
regions, Los Alamos Valley also grows thousands of acres of Chardonnay and
Pinot Noir, as well as smaller experimental acres of Italian varieties. But
since Los Alamos Valley
is not an official appellation, you won't see it
on a wine label, rather the
Santa Barbara County designation is
This unique valley experiences tremendous temperature
swings of warm days and very cold nights, which enables the grapes produced
from this region to achieve incredible concentration and balance. In addition,
its well-drained soils plus a wide range of micro-climates allow for a
diversity of red and white varietals.
The Los Alamos Vineyard, itself, dates back to
the early days of Santa Barbara viniculture. Originally planted in 1974, it was
one of the first four vineyards in the County. The others include
Nacido, Sierra Madre, and Firestone
. Only adding to its lore,
Los Alamos Vineyard was the birthplace of
Au Bon Climat winery midst
a humble dairy barn in 1982. Today, the vineyard grows Chardonnay that is by
far the most exciting!
The section of Chardonnay for the High Note Cellars
production is found at the top of the vineyard on a western facing slope.
The soil on this exposed face is truly amazing. It has
a combination of calcaric shale, sand, clay and loam with a vein of lime at 2.5
feet below the surface.
â€śThe wines from this site are typically full of citrus
and bright stone fruit. The lime in the soil gives the wine a solid mineral
backbone. Los Alamosâ€™ terroir allows the fruit to reach full ripeness with
balanced acid and sugar levels. Vintage after vintage, I am constantly amazed
by the elegance of this site and its ability to produce great California
