Estate on montebello ridge
Our Estate Vineyard Cabernet debuts with this 2013 vintage after a long absence from our product line. Deep dark purple indicating great extraction. Gorgeous aromas laced with blackberries and cassis. On the palate smooth with medium tannins, good structure, long mid-palate with layers of bitter-sweet chocolate, anise and green olives. Slightly closed-in but drinkable now and will develop in the bottle to ten years. Classic higher elevation Cabernet. Not filtered, not fined, native yeast, aged 18 months in French oak. Great value for this outstanding, custom wine.
This vintage marks the first year of our association with the Amador County appellation. This Shenandoah Valley vineyard is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada above 1000 feet elevation. The location offers a combination of unique physical aspects conducive to the growth of Zinfandel grapes. Hot summer temperatures, consistently 90 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit and above, followed by the cooling night time Sacramento delta breezes combine with varied soil types, and good soil moisture, to produce great fruit. Our 2013 Zinfandel exemplifies this region's best. Firm acid, major fruit forward, higher alcohol and a touch of residual sugar makes this wine a "Fruit Bomb". Great with meat dishes (especially lamb), cheeses, or just to relax at the end of the day. Ruby red color, with aromas of raspberry and briar notes. On the palette opulent mouth feel with fig, black cherry and essence of walnuts. Unfiltered, aged in French oak.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Montebello Ridge
Rich, bold and complex with notes of violets and green olives. Jammy blueberry, cassis, and briar notes are balanced and well-integrate on the palate. Long mid-palate with soft tannins holding for a beautiful finish.
Zinfandel 2015 Shenandoah Valley Amador County
Black cherry notes waft off the top of the glass, followed by peppery spice & rich dark fruits on the palate. Soft & smooth mouth feel. Elegant style, long-lasting finish. Warm summers, volcanic/granite soils, and dry farming combine to make this Amador County Zinfandel great for drinking now.
Citrus blossom aromatics on the nose. Orange trees in bloom with lemon twist, flint minerality reflect the high granite soil content. Textural element of lemon cream. Light and tasty with firm acid. A great refreshing choice for an afternoon lift.
