Rich, lush and structured, our inaugural vintage displays intense aromas of dark plum, vanilla and soft mocha. This wine is velvety in texture with a long finish of dried berry, toasty oak and milk chocolate. Enjoy this wine now with a seared New York sirloin and peppercorn sauce or your favorite assortment of cheese and charcuterie.
Sonoma County started off with copious amounts of rain saturating the soil in late winter and spring, about 150% of normal. Heavier rains continued off and on into May followed by early summer heat waves in June which acclimated the vines to warmer weather. Moderate temperatures through the rest of summer allowed for even cluster development. The harvest season was pleasant, with warm weather developing sugar and allowing flavors to ripen until the grapes were harvested October 14.
Our Reserve wines are the result of a careful blend of individual lots from meticulously farmed sections of some of the very best vineyards in Sonoma County. Created in our small lot Artisan Cellar, Winemaker Justin Seidenfeld employs techniques such as cluster pre-sorting and extended maceration. With small tanks and equipment sized for the most discriminating vineyard selection process, our cellar is state-of-the-art and represents the Klein family commitment to producing the finest wines possible
