I think that stylistically the wines that we make here at [UNKNOWN] are closer to the Old World style, even though we're in the New World. First of all, I think that we are very lucky because our soil composition at a meter to a meter and a half. It's small pebbles and larger pebbles. In fact, we're surrounded by pebbles. This is because primarily we're in a riverbed. Here we're at the top of the ridge. And that's where the edge of the river was, and then over five million years it shrank leaving only a little sliver. It gives us beautiful tannins that are soft, round, velvety. They're not very stringent. And the cold nights which are typical of a desert. They promote acidity within our wines. The complexities within these vineyards really, I think, comes through in the glass. [BLANK_AUDIO]
