Vintage 2017 began with restorative rains that replenished soils, helped support vine growth and fortified the vineyards through the Spring. Harvest began normally with yields looking promising, but a late-August heat wave that continued into September caused harvest to pick up at a rapid pace. October was marked by wildfires in the North Coast, and while the fires devastated many homes and properties, our fruit was unaffected and our winery made it safely through this tumultuous time. Overall, most saw an abundant harvest with above normal yields that gave our winemakers quality fruit and the opportunity to develop wines with depth and character.
The blend is 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petite Sirah, 7% Malbec, 5% Merlot and 1% Syrah. This is a blend that works with anything, anywhere anytime.Cherries and blackberries up front, lovely tannins to build the complexity and then a soft round finish. Lots of depth and a definite character to it. It tastes like a Cab should. Someone said ‘brawny and old school” .. Yeah. I agree.
