Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby in the glass, the complex nose marries ripe plum and dark cherry fruit over notes of olive, vanilla and balsamic. The dark fruits carry through to the palate framed by a round and supple structure. A lovely juiciness gives the wine energy against the dense, chewy tannins. The wine is accessible in its youth, and will continue to gracefully develop over the next ten years.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Hamel Family Ranch Red Wine (mainly Cabernet Sauvignon) is deep ruby-purple and scented of crème de cassis, graphite, black cherry pie, vanilla bean and sweet spices with notes of earth, dried herbs and blueberries. The full-bodied, rich, powerful palate gives up intense, minerally fruit, with a muscular tannic frame and good freshness to counter the long, dense finish. Give this time in bottle—it should age well. 2

Sonoma Valley Wine

Sonoma County, California

Perhaps the most historically significant appellation in Sonoma County, the Sonoma Valley is home to both Buena Vista winery, California's oldest commercial winery, and Gundlach Bundschu winery, California's oldest family-run winery.

It is also one of the more geologically and climactically diverse districts. The valley includes and overlaps four distinct Sonoma County sub-appellations, including Carneros, Moon Mountain District, Sonoma Mountain and Bennett Valley. With mountains, benchlands, plains, abundant sunshine and the cooling effects of the nearby Pacific, this appellation can successfully produce a wide range of grape varieties. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gewürztraminer, and most notably, Zinfandel all thrive here. Ancient Zinfandel vines over 100 years old produce small crops of concentrated, spicy fruit, which in turn make some of the Valley's most unique wines. These can also be made as “field blends” (wines made from a mix of grape varieties grown in the same vineyard) along with Petite Sirah, Carignan and Alicante Bouschet.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
