*Certified Organic Ingredients*

90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot

Paso Robles, California

This Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with 10% Petit Verdot, is sourced from two different vineyards in the Paso Robles AVA. Whale Rock Vineyard, located in the Tem­ple­ton Gap Dis­trict, is the coolest microclimate within the Paso Robles AVA. The vineyard is gravelly clay loam with lots of limestone and ancient marine fossils, including whale bones. The vine­yard is organically farmed, certified and also incorporates bio­dy­nam­ic practices.

Jack Knife Vineyard is on the east side of Paso Robles.  The vines are planted on steep slopes in this high ele­va­tion (1300 feet) vineyard. The fruit on these windswept hillsides ripens ear­ly and shows savory dark red and blue berry fruit flavors. The soils are a sandy clay loam with gravel.

The grapes were harvested between October 7 and 22, after a cool growing season. During fermentation the wine was punched down and pumped over once a day. The wine was aged in 40% new French oak for 20 months.
