2013 California Proprietor's Blend
Our flagship red wine, Proprietor’s Blend is homage to the classic wines of the Bordeaux region of France and while the varietal composition changes from year to year, it is always composed of two or more of the traditional Bordelais varieties. Our 2013 Blend is composed of 55% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Petit Verdot grown on a family-owned vineyard in the Clarksburg AVA and 18% Malbec from a vineyard high in the Fair Play region of El Dorado county. Blending these distinctively different components has produced a wine with the structure and intensity of Napa, the richness and accessibility of Clarksburg and the acid structure and high-note fruit of El Dorado. It was aged in small French Oak barrels (30% new) for 20 months.
