Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot "Aguafiestas"
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Smith Vineyard in Grass Valley, Sierra Foothills. This is an organic, dry-farmed site, with 40+ year old own-rooted vines, planted on granitic soils at 2,500 ft elevation. Dani has been farming this site since 2019. This Cabernet dominant co-ferment was built from many picks through the vineyard over weeks, with the new clusters continually added to the fermentation tank. The wine was transferred to neutral French oak for maturation and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
