Our primary goal is to let the vineyards speak in each bottle of wine we produce—spotlighting the unique impression of landscape, soil and climate here where our grapes were grown. All of our wines are made from the vineyards on our ranch. We believe that old chestnut - "Our wines are made in the vineyard". The vineyard is the base, the foundation that allows a winemaker to build a wine. Without a strong foundation, a wine has virtually no chance of being great tasting.
We use old world methods to handcraft unique vineyard designated wines. What can be described as minimalistic in the winery, we attempt to make tasty wine that makes good food taste better consumed together. Our flavorful wines are designed to be part of a meal and complement food, whether it’s a casual meal at home or a dinner at a top restaurant.
An easy drinkin’ wine that’s as comfortable with a mid-week pizza as an elegant Sunday roast. On the palate it is a lively wine with rich flavors of cherries, boysenberries and warm spices, all backed with bright acidity and a satisfying finish. This comes together to create a real crowd pleaser. Fortunately, you don’t need to be a High Roller to drink this wine often.
As with all our reds, we gently crushed the grapes as soon as we brought them into our winery. Individual lots were fermented and after fermentation was finished we gently pressed off the juice from the skins. This wine was assembled from lots aged 15 months in French oak barrels. The wines were then racked into a tank, fined with organic egg whites, and loosely filtered before bottling. Blend: Malbec 65%, Cabernet Franc 18%, and Merlot 17%.
