13 Tasks | 2013
A bold and refined blend of Cabernet Sauvignon & Malbec.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec were planted at the lowest point of our vineyard. This terraced pocket of gravel and clay soils is key for the Bordeaux grapes varieties. Cool, evening air sinks into this spot and helps the vines ripen slowly. The 13 Tasks is a labor of love since it takes a perfect growing season to fully ripen these Bordeaux varieties.
The 2013 is a dry wine with ripe red and black fruit flavors and a long, polished finish.
This is our favorite 13 Tasks to date. Vibrant, clean and modern. This is a red wine lover's dream wine.
Kinesis | 2013
As we climb a little higher in elevation, grape varieties like Grenache, Counoise & Mourvèdre thrive. These grapes need hot days, intense sunlight, and good air flow. In the evening, warm air from the valley rises into this area, protecting the vines.
These grape varieties are blended into a medium-bodied red blend and showcase red fruit, dried rose petal and a spicy finish.
Signature Chardonnay | 2013
The Emerald Pool vineyard block sits just below the apex of our vineyard. Here at 2,300 feet, this site yields exceptional Chardonnay unlike any other in California.
The 2013 vintage produced a special Chardonnay with a rich texture and layers of flavor. This impeccably balanced white wine has nuances of ripe stone fruit, charred pineapple and baking spice.
Apex 39 | 2013
At the apex of the vineyard site and near the apex of the 39th parallel, white grape varieties like Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier and Picpoul Blanc are grown. Here they are able to be in sunlight all day while heat is moderated. This very specific growing climate gives the wine a vibrant, freshness.
We couldn't be happier with the 2013 Apex white blend. White floral aromatics, juicy stone fruit, elegantly laced with acidity.
