2017 Estate Red 1.5L
Our flagship red blend is crafted from grapes grown on our Howell Mountain estate, where we sit high above the fog that often blankets the valley floor during our growing season. Each year the blend is comprised of the top-performing blocks, carefully tended by winemaker Sam Kaplan.
The 2017 vintage is reminiscent of a Left Bank Bordeaux with savory, earthy notes, underlying deep dark fruit and tobacco, mocha that teases the tip of the tongue, and a focused, yet lush, lingering finish. This is an elegantly structured wine that highlights the balance and depth of our estate vineyard, as well as Sam's attention to every detail, and his consistent ability to stylistically bring the best expression of our site to the wines.
