In 2018 our dry-farmed, head-trained vineyard turned 20 years old. An occasion to celebrate!  The 2018 vintage was big.  In every way, tonnage, aroma, flavor, acid, you name it! The blend of this vintage is 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Sangiovese.  For the first time, the Estate Riserva has more Cabernet than Sangiovese.  We are very proud of what this vineyard has produced over the last 20 years and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
