Vineyards:

  • Located East of the San Francisco Bay with a similar climate to  Northern Napa (in particular, St. Helena and Calistoga)

  • Unique East-West orientation of the valley draws cool coastal breezes creating vibrant fresh fruit and well-balanced wines

  • Gravel-based soils ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon to develop deep root systems that result in pronounced structure and depth of flavor

  • Large diurnal temperature swings lead to long hangtimes that develop concentration and complexity of flavor.

 

Aging:

  • Harvested in the 1st and 2nd weeks of October 2019

  • 17 months in French and American oak (2-4 years old)

  •  Bottled in September 2021

Tasting Notes:

  • Color: Deep royal lavender, moving into a bright magenta at the rim.

  • Aromas: Youthful vibrant expressions of pomegranate, dark cassis, light maraschino, stewed plum, and licorice. Slowly reveals notes of moss and earthy characteristics.

  • Palate: Matches the nose but supplements the fruit with density, structure, peppery decadence & hints of spicy clove, and vanilla.

 

 

Food Pairing:

  • All-American burger, Prime steaks, Braised red meats, Earthy mushroom dishes, and Strong cheeses.
