Winemaker's Notes:

Approximately 8% of the grapes are from the Russian River appellation, are barrel fermented, allowed to complete malolactic fermentation and held sur lie for 5 months. The balance of the grapes from the Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Barbara County are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Each wine is produced separately and a blend is made prior to bottling.

The Central Coast fruit tank fermented displays pineapple, citrus and apple. The barrel fermented Russian River fruit contributes oak notes in the nose, mouth and body. Stylistically, this wine has a wonderful complex nose with good body and clean finish.

Serve with roasted Cornish Game Hen with lemon and tarragon, veal piccata or poached salmon.

About Baron Herzog Winery:

Tucked away amongst the strawberry fields and row crops of industrial Oxnard lies Herzog Wine Cellars. Headed by winemaker Joe Hurliman, the winery combines the future of high-quality California wines with the stringencies of kosher supervision, and the Herzog family heritage of perfection.

These three elements have produced unique wines that are being noticed in the kosher and non-kosher communities. As a kosher wine, Baron Herzog allows kosher consumers a first-time-ever opportunity to enjoy elegant California varietals such as Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon. For the non-kosher consumers, Baron Herzog offers a high quality, award-winning wine that presents quality and craft.

Visitors to the winery may take a self-guided tour of the facility, which showcases the winemaking process from start to finish. Guests will also find unique and artisan food and gift products in their boutique, or may taste a flight of Herzog's award-winning California wines at the tasting bar.
