The Lomita Estate
- While the winery wasn't formally established until 2009, La Lomita's land holdings include vineyard sites with some of the Valle de Guadalupe's oldest vines.
- La Lomita produces most of its wines with fruit from their organically farmed vineyards located mid-valley on a northwestern facing slope at 950 ft elevation. The winery is one of the few to be certified organic.
- Their vineyards lie approximately 11 miles from the Pacific at an elevation of 1,000 ft. The soil profile is a mix of clay and granite.
Total production: 17 acres under vine, 8 wines, 7,500 cases
2015 Singular - La Lomita
Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:
The premium wine from Lomita's organically farmed estate, Singular is a bottling that represents a blend of the best barrels from each vintage. In 2015 the weather favored Tempranillo and Merlot, so those two grapes dominate the blend, which is accompanied by Cabernet Franc and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. While you can consume this wine right away and derive plenty of pleasure from it, this is a wine that will reward time in the cellar. Back vintages of this standalone wine are occasionally released for customers of the estate’s renowned restaurant Lunario and bottlings back to the original 2006 vintage are still on a beautiful path of evolution.
