THE VINEYARDS

We have been making small amounts of cabernet sauvignon for the last 15 years to blend with our merlot vintages. We always liked the quality of the cabernet but never made enough to bottle on its own. In 2000 we decided to change that and produced our first cabernet vintage. The grapes are grown in the Dry Creek Valley. Some of the cabernet is grown in front of our home and the rest is from the Larrick Ranch Vineyard, right next door. 

WINE MAKING NOTES

There is 10% merlot blended in, which is grown further out in the Dry Creek Valley on the Merlo Family Vineyards.

This wine is a typical cabernet with a balance of aromas ranging from currant to minty herb. It is very balanced from entry to finish and smoothed out by its twenty two months in the barrel.
This wine will age well for ten to twelve years but is very drinkable now.
