    Winemaker Notes

    This abernet Sauvignon has concentrated flavors of deep cherry, blackberry and currant with layers of chocolate and coffee. The wine is rich with a velvety texture and good structure for aging. Cellar for 5+ years.

    Situated eight miles south of Hollister and twenty-five miles east of Monterey Bay in San Benito County, the estate vineyard is cradled in its own private valley, whose unique combination of soil, climate and geography produces grapes and wine of uncommon character, Cienega Valley became wine country in 1850, when Frenchman Theophile Vache planted the region's first vineyards When Joseph Gimelli purchased the 455 acres surrounding the Dickinson house in 1989, the adjacent vineyards had not been tended for three years and were overrun by wild boar. Gimelli planted nearly 100 acres to Merlot, Sangiovese and Dolcetto, preserving only a one-acre block of Zinfandel and ten acres of Cabernet Sauvignon from previous plantings. Pietra Santa (named by Gimelli for the unusual limestone and granite soils) harvested its first vintage in 1992, under the supervision of Winemaker Alessio Carli, whose broad winemaking experience in Tuscany complements the estate's focus on Italian grape varieties. The first wines from Pietra Santa were released in 1994.

    Part of the larger Central Coast AVA, the valley was historically an important source of grapes for Almaden Vineyards before it was acquired by Constellation Brands in the 1980s. At 1,100 feet, the San Andreas Fault divides the valley so that one side is granite and sandstone, and the other is granite and limestone.

    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.
