2016 Langtry Old Soldier Road Proprietary Red, Lake County
Our 2016 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. One the nose the 2016 vintage displays aromas of chocolate covered cherries and leather, with notes of oak and whiskey lactones. On the palate, the Old Soldier is fruit forward with flavors of black cherries that evolve to blue fruit, with hints of leather and earthy notes, powerful tannins with a finish of rhubarb and tobacco.
87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Syrah, 3% Merlot
22 months in French and American Oak Barrels (50% 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.
