Mountain Estate Vineyard

Following more than four decades planting vineyards and adapting farming practices to the mountain climate and terrain around the winery, we launched our Mountain Estate Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon. The core of this wine is Cabernet Sauvignon grown on steep, west facing terraces that rise above the winery, reaching a towering elevation of 1,400 feet. Other contiguous vineyard blocks yielding fruit of mature character and balance incorporate a great diversity of soils and exposures, providing additional complexity and unmistakable mountain terroir.

If the 2005 vintage was the delicate and ever so elegant Audrey Hepburn, this 2006 is Marilyn Monroe. Gorgeous black cherry opaque color in the glass; one truly is struck by the dark depths of this wine even before the first sip. Flavors of cassis, blackberry and dark cacao mingle with aromas of black fruit, cedar and black olive. The 2006 is an astonishing vintage that continues to reveal its flavors with increasing intensity culminating in a layered crescendo of fine grain tannins, blackberry and dark chocolate espresso. This is a powerful, seductive wine that benefits from decanting up to thee hours ahead of serving.
