Type: Red Wine
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Working with over 50 vineyards, Turley applies organic principles and relies only on native yeasts for fermentation. Head winemaker, Tegan Passalacqua (Sandlands) is respected for his work in the cellar as much as for his encyclopedic knowledge of California's diversity of old vineyards throughout the state. Farming is organic and each cuvée is crafted without reliance on excessive new oak, additives, or manipulation in the cellar.
This wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from vines planted on the eastern portion of the Turley's home and winery in northern Saint Helena. Vibrant and deeply red in color, with notes of black and red briary fruits, plum, sage, chaparral, baking chocolate and nutmeg.
