Winemaker's Notes

In an industry where the term "Reserve" has been applied to wines of all quality levels and price points, Cheval Sauvage (French for "Wild Horse") is our label for wines worthy of a special designation.

Coming from specifically-selected barrels of wine from an outstanding vintage, bottlings bearing the Cheval Sauvage label truly stand head and shoulders above our already high winemaking standards. This discriminating selection - in combination with successive vintages of frightfully small yields - has resulted in very infrequent bottlings of Cheval.

With this in mind, we are extrememly pleased to announce our most recent release- the 2003 Cheval Sauvage a 60/40% blend of the Ashley's vineyard in the acclaimed Santa Rita Hills appellation, and the legendary Bien Nacido Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley.
