The first pick at the ranch is a scavenger hunt. On September 8, multiple blocks were meticulously combed for the most progressed fruit. Two days later, a larger pick of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, primarily from the lower blocks, was sorted over two days in order to get the most optimum fruit in the tank. The following day, the last fruit from the upper ranch was harvested along with a large section of the old vines at the base of the ranch. The last fruit was picked and combined in tank on September 17. The 2015 harvest was the earliest in more than 20 years.
Our allocation was just 3 bottles of this epic wine.
