Each vintage is one that plays to the strength of the vineyard:2011 was a historically cool growing season, a vintage of delicacy and subtlety, qualities that define the basic nature of Red Winery, a vineyard that specializes in balance instead of power. The 2011 is an incredibly pleasurable combination of floral, fruity, and savory.
I often refer to our Single Vineyard Stone as “a cab drinker’s cab.” It’s tannic, brambly, brooding. It’s a vineyard that takes a long, dry fall – plenty of hang-time, plenty of cold nights – to develop its full spectrum of complexity. 2012 was just such a vintage, and the Stone Single Vineyard Cabernet captures it – structure, great tannin, dark fruit. An archetype of Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2013 Pyramid Single Vineyard Cabernet is a heavyweight punching in it’s prime. The wine from here is purple and intense every vintage. The 2013 is an example of the power this vineyard is capable of: Santa Rosa plum, black coffee, star anise. Wow.
We have a small amount of each of these available, first come first served.
