A beautiful Sauvignon Blanc that perfectly balances flavors of citrus with vanilla and light oak.

This vintage displays all the characteristics that we expect from this great vineyard site. The mineral nose shows bright tropic notes of mango and citrus. On the palate, delicious fruit flavors of poached pair, vanilla, and citrus are highlighted by light oak and a persistent finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon

The wine has a sweet core of blackberry and cassis fruit, an opaque purple color, gorgeously integrated new oak with a suggestion of toast and a full-bodied, multidimensional mouthfeel and finish.


More about the wine

All of the grapes for this wine were hand-picked. Then they were de-stemmed, sorted, and pumped into a tank for a five-day cold soak at 50°. When the fermentation began, we pumped over the tank twice per day. Native yeast fermentation lasted for 16 days, followed by a short heated extended maceration of 3 days. The free run was drained from the tank overnight. The wine was barreled down into 70% new French oak and 30% once used barrels. Malolactic fermentation occurred naturally in the barrel. This wine was barrel-aged for 24 months and bottled unfiltered.
