Mild fruit flavors and subtle spices give this medium-bodied wine a low profile. The aromas are vaguely appley and the flavors bring hints of vanilla, while soft acidity and a light buttery finish complete the picture.
Grapes are selected from estate vineyards in California and our Chalk Knoll Vineyards ranch in San Ardo within the San Lucas AVA. cool coastal climate ensures high quality fruit that ripens slowly, developing delicate but rich flavors yielding intensely aromatic wines. We blend rich Cabernet Sauvignon with soft Merlot for a balanced mouth feel while adding American, French and Hungarian oak barrels as well as stainless tanks with micro oxygenation to create a soft and approachable food friendly wine.
