2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Gloeckner-Turner Ranch, Rockpile


Gloeckner-Turner Vineyard - Rockpile

The Gloeckner-Turner vineyard is located at 1,300 feet, high above Lake Sonoma. Wine makers consider this Rockpile AVA to be the perfect area for growing sturdy reds, and is in high demand as there are only a dozen growers in this region.

The combination of elevation requirements, extreme terrain and a unique climate, results in clusters with small berries and more intense fruit. Aged 24 months in French oak barrels. Unfiltered and unfined. Only 215 cases produced.
