The Wine: Scales and Arpeggios 2019
Stagiaire Wine Scales and Arpeggios in the words of winemaker Brent Mayeaux: "Scales and Arpeggios. Sangiovese planted at 2500ft in the Santa Cruz Mountains and managed by my friend Ken. He does the sprays and floor management. I take care of the canopy. 1/3rd whole clusters with the remainder destemmed on top. Best red wine I’ve made."
