2017 CALIFORNIA RED WINE
Every year, come early August, we adjust our alarms and start the early morning drives from vineyard to vineyard in a race against the sun. Throughout the year, we work with growers to get to this point, where the fruits of their labor come to fruition. Day in, day out, we rely on cars, trucks, tractors, boots and sometimes bicycles, allowing us to taste, deliberate, taste again and then decide when to pick, and on to the next. Overall, from the ridges of Mendocino to the Sierra Nevada Foothills, from the canyons above Santa Barbara and to everywhere in between, we traverse an area of 75,864 miles, culminating in a haphazard dance
across California’s wine regions.
A dark purple core, the wine’s aromatics lift with notes of ripe blackberry, cassis, slow-cooked Persian lamb and layers of spice—musk and cardamom to name a few. Elegant yet forceful, deep and pure, the palate exhibits dark plums, overripe blueberries and assorted black fruits. Dense through the finish, the wine closes
with a touch of tannin and soft sweet black cherry.
