Appellation AmericaWinemaker Robert Craig produces wine from hillside grapes on Howell Mountain and Mount Veeder. The grapes for this wine come from the latter region at elevations of up to 1,800 feet. The contours of the 26-acre site offer typical Mount Veeder terrain with multiple hillside exposures and changes in elevation of up to 400 feet. The well-drained sandstone and blue slate soils provide for growing small berries, with yields from one to three tons. Typical of the AVA, this wine is very dark in color with lots of chocolate-peppermint nuances. The blackberry fruit is sweet and bright and the wine is balanced read more...with good acidity. It’s a bit astringent at this point, attesting to its youth. So, hold it for a couple of years and drink it over the ensuing 15. The listed alcohol is high at 14.9 percent, but because of the concentration of the fruit, that aspect is mitigated. The wine was aged for 20 months in French wood, 75 percent of which was new, with the rest having seen two harvests. There were 1,665 cases made. (hide)
