Saddle leather, dark cured tobacco, vanilla bean and nutmeg right upfront. Reminiscent of Brunello di Montalcino’s finest (though not Sangiovese!) This Cabernet offers gorgeous dark cherry and dried field strawberry fruit, coupled with young fresh herbs and straw on the palate. Light, pleasant tannins balance well with the light to medium acidity to deliver a Cabernet that is food-friendly, yet elegant enough to drink on its own. A jewel of the Santa Cruz Mountains!

This vineyard site was part of an original 160 acre vineyard and apple orchard planted in the early 1900’s. The vineyard was abandoned during prohibition and then resurrected in 1949 when retired Sherrif’s deputy Amos Beauregard purchased the property. It sits at an elevation of 1700 to 1850 feet on a southwest facing slope. Monterey Bay marine influences combine with sandy loam soil to produce wines with minerality and striking acidity. Plantings: Four acres Pinot Noir, clones: Pommard, 667 & 115. One acre Chardonnay, clone 4. Three acres Zinfandel, clone Primitivo. Four acres Cabernet Sauvignon, Dijon clone.
