A blend of Sangiovese fruit from our own estate vineyard in the Diamond Mountain District along with fruit from Voyager Vineyard, with a touch of Napa Valley Merlot.
The 2015 vintage was of high quality, but very low yields in many varieties. The harvest will also be remembered as one of the earliest ever. The relatively dry and warm winter resulted in small clusters of grapes with highly concentrated flavors yielding wines of deep, rich flavors and excellent quality with deep color and lovely fruit aromas. - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Sangiovese is an historic red wine grape variety originating in Northern Italy, where it is recognized as the superior variety. It often forms part of a blend to create harmonious, focused food wines.
