The defining elements of Keltie arise from sites heavily influenced by cool breezes in western Sonoma county, and characteristic of north coast wines, providing herb and spice flavors in addition to acidity, or from very low vigor hillside sites that provide concentration, depth, and structure.

Griffin’s Lair Vineyard
Griffin’s Lair’s unique terroir is driven by the steady winds that pour from the Pacific Ocean through the Petaluma wine gap. Layered with complexity that is difficult to deconstruct and revealed only with patience (i.e. subtle), this is a tremendous wine.

Walker Vine Hill Vineyard
Each year Walker Vine Hill wines evoke the color blue, over and over again. Pure plums and blueberry provide a dark “blue” core for other components like smoke and flint to complement. The aromatics are enticing, seductive, and have tremendous purity. A silky smooth wine with a broad, succulent palate and texture.

Intense savory aromas of grilled meat, tobacco, wet stones, and lavender all laid over a foundation of intense blackberry and cherry. This is a big wine that is nothing less than exactly what the site “wants” to produce: mineral driven, dense, chewy, savory, and fruity wine. The kitchen sink: or in other words, Obsidian terroir! Drink now or hold this incredible wine, if you can, for 10 to 15 years.
