This signature red showcases our best terroir producing a wine that is complex, round, and silky, with well-developed flavors of toasted oak, black currant, and black cherry. Enjoy with steak, lamb, and hard, salty cheeses such as gruyère.

Terroir:

This wine is made from 100% estate-grown fruit. Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s Mountain in the Monticello American Viticultural Area (AVA). The red varieties were planted on southern exposure slopes. The clay strata includes a significant proportion of rocks, mainly shists from volcanic basalts.

Vintage Notes:

After a good start to the growing season, the hot and dry summer led to early flavor development and ripeness, which allowed us to pick one week earlier than expected in August.

 

Winemaking Notes:

The grapes for New World Reserve are hand-harvested and sorted then gravity fed to tank, where it undergoes a cold maceration for 4-5 days. The grapes are then fermented entirely in stainless steel tanks at no more than 81° F. After alcoholic fermentation, the grapes experience an extended post maceration and malolactic fermentation. The free run and press wines are separated and aged in 70% new and 30% used French oak barrels for about 14-16 months.
