As you enter onto our property, the Cabernet greets you on both sides of the driveway. We have two clones of Cabernet, 4 & 6. These are both very small-berry clones that offer great structure, depth and color. In 2018, we hand harvested the Cabernet on the morning of October 4th. After harvesting we hand sorted the fruit allowing only the best fruit to get into the fermenter. The wine then fermented for 14 days and after pressing went directly to new French and American oak barrels where it remained for 20 months of maturing. The Estate Cabernet is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. It is beautiful now but will continue to age gracefully for the next 5-8 years.
Spanish Springs Vineyard is located on the southern end of the central coast AVA and one mile from the Pacific Ocean. This wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels for 12 months. Medium body in style, this wine has notes of red cherry, strawberry, cinnamon and a touch of toasted oak on the finish.
Aromatics of mint, cherry and eucalyptus. On the palate loads of red cherry and raspberry with notes of cinnamon and spice. 296 cases produced.
Sourced from the White Hawk Vineyard in the Los Alamos Hills, it is 21 miles west of the Pacific and 2 miles north of Los Alamos and planted at 900 feet elevation. This region is recognized as a top producing wine region. Fog often embraces the small vineyard in the morning before gentle afternoon breezes chase it away to allow the sun's rays to slowly ripen the fruit.
Aromatics of red cherry and vanilla. Soft on the palate with loads of dark fruit, raspberry, cracked pepper and toast. 170 cases produced.
Fermented slowly in stainless steel tank then laid down to French and American Oak barrels (25% new oak). Once malolactic fermentation was complete we racked the wine off its lees and let it age for 18 months.
Produced from the Paper Street Vineyard's head-trained vines of the Dusi clone, this Zinfandel is exuberant on the nose in rich aromas of berry, black plum, fig and raisin, lifted by star anise and gingerbread spice. The palate is thick and jammy but sliced with acidity, showing strong berry, clove and cinnamon flavors. We aged our Zinfandel in American oak barrels for 18 months and bottled it unfined and unfiltered.
Deep-pitched dark berry preserve, licorice and floral aromas, with baking spice and cola nuances in the background. Sappy and round on the palate, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors that are given backbone and lift by a spine of juicy acidity. A smoky nuance appears on the long, spice-driven finish, where velvety tannins provide gentle closing grip.
It is delicious now but will continue to develop beautifully over the next 5-10 years.
