With the 2013 vintage we turned our attention to the "old vine" block of Cabernet on Warnecke Ranch. Situated at the foot of Chalk Hill, this handful of acres represents the remainder of the original Clone 8 plantings established by John Carl Warnecke in 1973. The dry-farmed vines with their deep roots and gnarled wood produce a scant 2 tons to the acre, lending remarkable concentration to the fruit. Over the course of 29 months in barrel, the resulting rich phenolics and tannins have integrated beautifully into the finished wine.
French and Hungarian Oak with 25% new oak.
93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot
