This new vineyard first earned its wings with the 2013 vintage with a vineyard designated bottling of its own at ABC. It is very limited in production, so get it now. Runway Vineyards planted 16 acres of vines in 2008 on a 1,000 acre parcel. It is located near Bien Nacido Vineyards in the Santa Maria Valley but the fruit from is very distinct: richer and more intense. The family-owned business was founded by Abel Maldonado, Jr. (California’s former Lieutenant Governor and Senator) and his daughter Erika Maldonado.

Wine and Spirits Magazine

Score: 90  "Scents of salted almond and sherry give way to golden-apple flavors brightened by pale citrus accents. It’s clean and fresh, and will deliver for scallop crudo." —P.J.C. (140 cases)
