2011 Cabernet Sauvignon
True to form, the 2011 exhibits intensity and balance but with an extra level of richness
reflecting this wonderful year. A judicious use of French Oak of mixed toasts gives this
vintage added elegance and grace.
Alcohol 13.5, Clone 337, TA 5.9g/L, pH 3.55Some words about the girls
Our girls lead an extravagantly simple way of life, proving in every glass that good
breeding and abundant sunshine pays off. The sustainably farmed Beckstoffer Family
Amber Knolls Vineyard is where the girls call home. They enjoy bright intense sunlight
moderated by cooling sea breezes from the west; we harvest them before sunrise in the
days prior to the fall rains.A girl's eye view
The girls look up from their 2,000-2,400 ft. elevation, and enjoy a stunning panorama of Clear Lake and Mt. Konocti, languidly gazing on the morning fog below. Looking down, they can usually see themselves reflected in the obsidian rocks mixed throughout the bright red, vocanic soil. The upper slopes of the Beckstoffer Amber Knolls Vineyard in the Red Hills, is the exact address.
What the girls look and smell like
They look like a lovely rich and elegant garnet. And the smell is a blend of cassis, current and the deepest darkest cherry.What the girls feel like
You know how a silk scarf can just slip from your shoulder unexpectedly. This
middleweight wine delivers glide-from-your-shoulder silkiness.What the girls taste like
Cassis and bramble fruit with a hint of Mother Earth and sufficient cocoa to make it
Red Hills, Lake County
