We predict this wine will be making a brief appearance ‐- and most likely exclusively to wine club members. Quite possibly one of the loveliest wines to have come from our original 8‐acre (previously Legacy) block, this parcel is located in front of Fred and Sally’s house where the vineyard makes a dip and the soil nutrients settle into the bowl and the fog holds on slightly longer than the rest of the property. These softer soils make for rounder tannins, a layered strawberry rhubarb, lavender primrose entry, cocoa berry mid pallet, and an elegant, spicy finish.
Winemaker Andy Schweiger created the Single Vineyard Select program to showcase the diversity of our Spring Mountain estate. Montaire is sourced from a single vineyard block of Cabernet Sauvignon next to the family home. This block is in a micro-climate of its own, as it is essentially a divot in our hilly terroir. This allows the vineyard pocket to collect soil sediment and nutrients, along with the ability to hold onto some fog when it reaches our 2,000 ft elevation.
