Vineyard Notes
To make a well-balanced red wine, we blended Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Alicante, Malbec and Syrah from six different appellations in California. Fruit from Napa Valley lends complexity while Sonoma adds a touch of spice to the blend. Amador fruit adds concentration while Mendocino fruit gives the wine its color, rich, ripe fruit flavors and tannins. Lake County adds structured tannins and minerality while fruit from Lodi rounds out the blend adding rich flavors and soft texture.
Winemaking Notes
Across California in 2017, the growing season started with much needed winter rains, resulting in a later than usual bud break. Warm spring and summer temperatures, followed by a late summer heat wave, caused us to pick our fruit in the beginning of September.
Harvest Notes
After fermentation, the wine was aged in 1 & 2-year-old American oak to complement the flavors and tannins of the wine and soften the mid-palate.
