Although the S.L.V. and F A Y vineyards adjoin each other, the wines they produce carry expressly different aspects of the terroir. S.L.V. soils are predominantly volcanic in nature and contribute multi-layered structure, concentration, and spicy intensity, often referred to as the “fire” elements. FA Y’s soils, more alluvial in makeup, yield more of the “water” elements of softness, perfume, and rich berry qualities.
