Vineyard Notes

The California Shenandoah Valley is the oldest growing region in the broader Sierra Foothills Appellation. It is the most western and least elevated of its sister appellations, and warm climate varietals benefit from substantial summer heat. The hilly terrain and poor water holding capacity produce rich, highly structured wines. The soil profile for much of the valley is decomposed granite derived from the Sierra Nevada mountain range, as well as sandy loam. The high iron content gives the soil a rusted color.

Production Notes

Destemmed to a stainless-steel fermentation tank. Cold soaked for 5 days before inoculation and fermented on the skins for a total of 14 days. Aged in once used French oak barrels for 18 months prior to bottling.

Pairings

Pair this medium bodied wine with Cumin Spareribs, 5 Spice Grilled Pork Chops, or Roasted Vegetables.
