Winemaker Notes

The Robert Young Estate Scion is a flavorful and enjoyable Bordeaux style red wine. Flavors and aromas of black cherries, plums and chocolate are enhanced with well-intergrated layers of tasty oak. Touches of mint, spice, vanilla, mocha and herbs add complexity. The rich smooth texture leads to a long, lingering finish.

Robert Young Estate Winery, California
Robert Young Estate Winery Winery Image
One hundred and forty-three years after Peter and Rachel Young established their 206-acre farm in Alexander Valley, California, their great-grandchildren are building a winery and adding a new chapter to the family history. The Young Family became winegrowers in 1963 when third generation Robert Young planted the valley's first Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. In 1975 they were propelled into international prominence, with the help of winemaker Richard Arrowood, by becoming one of the first vineyard-designation wines in California. The legacy now continues, collaborating again with Arrowood to create the premier offerings from Robert Young Estate Winery.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
