Winemaker Notes

Blend: 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Proprietary Red Blend, made from 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, is a winner. It reveals good structure and tannin as well as the vintage’s lavish personality and extroverted fruit, glycerin and intensity. It is a big fruit bomb with a deep ruby/purple color and sweet notes of licorice, blackcurrants, blackberries, espresso and white chocolate. Full-bodied and voluptuous, despite its light tannins, it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years.

Wine Enthusiast
This is a smoothly crafted, delicate blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. Its ethereal nature does not preclude plenty of quiet power, which provides a sturdy foundation for the bright cassis and raspberry flavor. Subtle spice box, cedar and cigar add to its complexity and length.

California

Red Wine

View all wine

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, cult status.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, and remain active new frontiers for Rhône and Spanish varieties.

Mendocino in California’s cool North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
