2014 Langtry "Old Soldier Road" Proprietary Red, Lake County AVA
Our 2014 Langtry Old Soldier Road Proprietary Red wine is barrel selected from the highest quality fruit grown on our acclaimed hillside vineyard. The vineyard produces low yields of perfectly mature, intensely concentrated fruit. Aromas of cherry, dark chocolate and smoky oak greet you as the wine opens in the glass. Its flavors of black cherry and blueberry evolve into leather and earthy notes on the palate. Powerful tannins support a delectable finish of rhubarb and tobacco.
62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petit Verdot 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot
2 years, 4 months in French and American Oak Barrels (100% new)
The high elevation Tephra Ridge Vineyard is the winery’s premier vineyard site. Perched on the north foothill of Howell Mountain above the Guenoc Valley, the 35-acre Tephra Ridge Vineyard has thin, gravelly loam volcanic soils that typify the finest Bordeaux variety sites.
