Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Once in a while, with extraordinary vintages, a special lot of wine is discovered in the cellar. Winemaker Aaron Pott traced one 2010 barrel lot back to the vineyard parcel - not surprisingly, this extra special wine originated on the rocky soils of "Block 1" on the south side of our estate. The See clone bud wood came from Napa Valley's famed "Backus Vineyard" in Oakville. The soil and clonal selection (and farming practices) yield very small berries with intense flavors and tannins. Aaron carved this small lot wine out of the cellar to create the fist vintage of our "Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon." Of course this sweet spot in the vineyard will be watched closely each vintage for more Grand Reserve opportunities.
Our vineyard is managed by Elizabeth Tangney and our estate crew, with consulting from winemaker Aaron Pott.
