2014 Big Ranch Cuvee-
Made with the assumption that the sum is greater than its parts, the varieties were blended to make a big, structured wine that is also soft and well rounded. The blend of this wine is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Syrah. All aged for 22 months in French oak barrels.
2013 EntreCOTe, Big Ranch Vineyard-
The original name of the Malbec grape was Cot, which we considered using for this wine. Instead, we call it EntreCOTe which is French for a ribeye steak . . . which happens to pair perfectly with this wine. To add roundness and complexity we blended in Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to produce a wine with character and grace. It is full bodied yet not overpowering and enjoyable with cheeses or your favorite cut of steak!
2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Oak Knoll District-
This big, bold wine is everything you would expect from a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This fruit is 100% from the MOGAMBO VINEYARD in the Oak Knoll District. Aged 22 months in 100% new French Oak barrels, this wine is multi-layered and spicy, with a hint of pepper. Only 330 cases were produced.
