Type: Red Wine
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Planted in 1969, these dry-farmed vines perch at 1,700’ above the Sonoma Valley in volcanic loam. Destemmed and fermented with native yeast, then basket pressed to 15% new French oak barrels for 22 months of elevage.
A range of floral, savory and earthy notes gives the single-vineyard Montecillo that trademark aromatic profile that is such a signature. Dark red fruits and red floral notes. Big tannins add energy as well as shape to this classically built Cabernet.
