    Winemaker Notes

    Our Spring Mountain District Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is the flagship wine of Terra Valentine spanning all parts of our two estate vineyards. A blend of Wurtele Vineyard Cabernet as well as Cabernet, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc from the Yverdon Vineyard and the Terra Valentine estate, the wine shows the character of all elevations and the four soil types of our estates. The estate fruit is de-stemmed and the whole berries cold-soaked for two days prior to fermentation. The wine spends an average of 21 days on the skins before the free-run wine is settled and racked to barrel for malolatic fermentation. The wine spends 22 months in French Oak barrels of which 35% are new which accents the trademark flavors of cocoa powder and black currant.

    Rhône White Blends

    View all wine

    Full-bodied and flavorful, Rhône white blends are made in France’s Rhone Valley and beyond, proving most successful in Spain, Australia, South America, and California’s Central Coast. They are made from a combination of two or more of the white varieties permitted in the Rhône, potentially including Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Viognier.

    In the Glass

    Each variety brings something different to the table. Round, textural Grenache Blanc contributes green apple and white stone fruit flavors; weighty Marsanne adds structure and delicate honeysuckle aromas; russet-colored Roussanne lends intriguing herbal, tea-like notes, and Viognier provides an oily texture and an elegant floral perfume. The flavor of the final wine will depend on the chosen components of the blend and their respective proportions.

    Perfect Pairings

    Since Rhône white blends tend to be fairly full-bodied, they can be quite versatile food pairing wines and can work with light to medium rich meals that might normally be matched with reds. Meatier fish dishes with bold seasoning like grilled swordfish with caper butter or baked, herb-crusted mahi mahi are natural allies for these flavorful wines. Other ideal dishes include roast pork in mustard sauce, poached lobster with beurre blanc, or a rich and savory vegetable quiche. `

    Sommelier Secret

    In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are most common, in the appellations of St.-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage, and St-Péray (in Condrieu and Château-Grillet, whites are made from Viognier only). The Southern Rhône, on the other hand, has much more variety, with many more permitted grapes including Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul Blanc, and Ugni Blanc.
