The Gloeckner-Turner vineyard is located at 1,300 feet, high above Lake Sonoma. Winemakers consider this Rockpile AVA to be the perfect area for growing sturdy reds, and are 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.
Deep red and purple hues with notes of dark berries and tobacco. Rich and round with hints of black current, blackberry, vanilla and nutmeg. Earthy and chewing lingering finish.
Varietal Composition: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
TA: 6.34 g/L
Barrel Program: 100% French Oak, 60% new
