ABOUT THIS WINE

2010 proved that picking at the right time is crucial… Lucky for us we hit the nail on the head. Our fruit came off the vines ripe and ready to produce this mouth bomb of a wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes exuberate flavors of cherry, plum, blackberry, and boysenberry while our Cab Franc spices it up with a little white pepper, sage, cherry cola. After blending the two, a few splashes of this and a splash of that, I think we put together one of the most food friendly Cabernets Sauvignons, Sonoma County has to offer. Enjoy this wine with dinner or just over a few laughs…This wine will not disappoint in any occasion.

ABOUT THIS WINE

A wine fit for a king!! Or in this case a wedding! Our 2009 Reserve Red Wine came into existence when one of our closest family friends asked us to create something special for his special day. Allowing this wine to meld together for an extra year in barrel soften the tannins up front but still retained the right amount to create a round mouth feel that can stand on its own with the heavy hitters. With bright flavors of raspberry and cherry, our oak selection produced just enough spice, hints of coffee, and complexity to keep you guessing for hours as this wine lingers.

ABOUT THIS WINE

Be careful, this wine is a monster. Steep slopes and poor soil make retaining water in these vineyards very difficult. The result is smaller berries, which means a more skin to juice ratio. The skin is where the compounds responsible for color and mouth feel are found, and this wine has plenty of both. These vineyards also sit high on Rockpile Ridge, above the fog line, where the sun shines more often making it warmer. This dries out the fruit, just a little, just enough to intensify the flavors of cherry, strawberry jam, and chocolate, highlighted with hints of vanilla and black currant.
