The approximately 500 vines include all 5 Bordeaux red varietals – Roughly 52% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. The goal was to create a complex, high quality, organically farmed wine sourced from a field blend of Bordeaux varietals.
The annual yield is approximately 1600 pounds making 25 plus cases of wine. The award-winning wine is well balanced with firm yet supple tannins, big blackberry, blueberry, mocha and dark fruit flavors and a fully rounded mouthfeel. It has won numerous Double Gold and Best of Class awards at the Sonoma Harvest Festival.
