This is our second bottling from Rutherford: home of Mark’s mother and his home growing up. The Neal family controls three vineyards in Rutherford and this bottling comes from two of those properties: one on Manley Lane and the other on Mee Lane. The ranches are all farmed organically, certified with the CCOF and produce Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with expressive characteristics of the land.

This year we fermented in small stainless tanks, using only the indigenous yeast. The finished wine captured the flavor, color and texture desired by the winemakers. French oak barrels are used to age this wine in our caves for almost 30 months. Complex aromas of red and black fruit, toast, earthy (Rutherford Dust), vanilla and yeast. Flavors of cherry, tobacco and spice, create a juicy and soft texture along with an inviting, lingering finish.
