97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot

Paso Robles, California

VINEYARD
The Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot grapes for this wine come 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.

CELLAR
The grapes were harvested in late October. 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.
