2013 High Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The High Valley AVA rises between 1,600 and 3,000 ft. elevation in the Coastal Ranges of northeastern Lake County. Thanks to the high elevation and cool breezes from the oldest lake in North America, it is one of the coolest appellations in Lake County. We run 1,000 head of sheep on these vineyards, composting the weeds into nutrients for the red, rocky volcanic soils. These are intensely flavored grapes, and we craft them into wines that capture the character of this remarkable region.

Tasting Notes

Our High Valley Cabernet Sauvignon explodes with aromas of blackberries, cassis and spice notes. Complex flavors of dark berries, black cherries, and soft herbs open up as this breathes. It is a well-balanced wine with depth that finishes with silky tannins and great structure.
