2015 Langtry "Old Soldier Road" Proprietary Red, Lake County AVA
Our 2015 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 chocolate covered cherry, leather and oak fuse seamlessly into the palate of blue and black fruits, earth and violets. Persistent notes of rhubarb and tobacco intermingle with velvety tannins on the finish.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot 10% Petite Syrah
2 years, 6 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.
