Vineyard Notes
Located at 2400 ft. above sea level, these grapes were estate- grown at our Hay Station Ranch vineyard where warm days are cooled by the evening mountain air. This areas unique soil of decomposed granite mixed with volcanic sediment and red clay produce a wonderful mineral component. Grapes have been grown, in the Sierra Foothills for 150 years.
Production Notes
Our winemaker hand selected grapes throughout our vineyards only using what he deemed the best of each variety. Hand harvested at their peak, each individual lot was fermented, received extended maceration, and was independently aged in small French and American oak barrels in our underground caverns. After barrel aging, the varietals were blended together, just prior to bottling, and received additional bottle aging prior to release.
Winemaker Notes
For the 2013 vintage, our winemaker chose four of the noble Bordeaux grape varieties to be a part of this magnificent blend which is an exceptionally elegant full-bodied wine. Aromas of blackberry jam, cassis and cola layered by mint and white pepper are displayed. Luscious cooked berry fruit fills the mouth with hints of vanilla and rich blackberry carries through to a smooth and well-rounded finish.
