75% merlot, 25% cabernet sauvignon sourced from organically farmed vineyards in the Sierra Foothills (the merlot vineyard is CCOF certified, with no till farming being practiced). All vines are planted in clay and loam soils.
Fermented in 1.5 ton vats, with very gentle punch-downs, and aged in neutral barrels for twelve months.
Supple yet structured and old-world in style, it's a perfect homage to Bordeaux.
