Our Left Bank Red vineyard after pruning looking southwest
We just learned that our 2018 Left Bank Red was reviewed in the latest issue of the Wine Spectator, and awarded a score of 91 POINTS. Here’s what they had to say:
“Refined, with a sleek texture to the raspberry, dark currant and blackberry flavors, this is filled with fresh acidity. Crushed green herbal and spice notes come in on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2024. 2,293 cases made.” 91 POINTS —Kim Marcus
This wine is a blend of equal amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from vineyards on the left bank of Conn Creek as it flows through our ranch in Conn Valley. The soil is a deep outcropping of gravel, and the wine is striking example of organically grown fruit and our traditional winemaking practices.
