2022 Desert Hills Cactus Red
Both Vineyards are situated on the Black Sage Bench, where the east-west orientation allows for great sun exposure, and the famous sandy soil allows for excellent drainage. Leaf thinning throughout the season improved the already good sun exposure and provided excellent ventilation in the fruit zone. Fruit selection and vine spacing led to a fruit count of approximately 3.1 tons per acre.
Cooperage: A combination of Stainless steel and French oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: Textured and ready to drink this wine brings forth ripe berry flavors, and savory spices in a supple and juicy mid palate. A fun and cheerful wine!
