Since 2014, we have been sourcing fruit from the Old Federal Vineyard, which is considered one of the most significant vineyards in the state if not the world. This vineyard has contributed more to U.C. Davis’ understanding of viticulture than any other. In 2016, we started working with the Lincoln Creek Vineyard to better express the full range of this nested AVA.
Ripe red fruits with a touch of blueberry, brown sugar baking spices and sweet oak lead to layers of rich red fruit, some blueberry, and cassis flavors. The beautifully integrated sweet vanilla oak complements the palate all the way through with a rich, long finish.
