Winemaker's Notes

Much of the Syrah and Merlot came from our Sonoma Coast Vineyards called the Lazy C and P. The balance of the Syrah is from the Central Coast areas of Paso Robles and Shandon where those grapes produce dark, rich wine. The Cabernet Franc is from a hillside vineyard planted on rocky, red soil made of decomposed granite. This vineyard is east of Lodi and the irrigation is managed using "deficit irrigation" to control vigorous growth and increase flavor and color intensity. The Petite Sirah vineyard is on its "fifth leaf" and grows at the base of the foothills in the south-east corner of Sacramento county. It is cooled by the Sacramento Delta breezes and the grapes are dark and flavorful.

Medium-bodied and complex, flavors of chocolate, berries, cherries and licorice abound. The black pepper finish settles with smooth tannins. You can drink red truck anywhere, anytime (it pairs well with pizza and tomato based dishes). And for you die-hard Cline fans, take it for a spin and floor it baby, metaphorically speaking of course!
