Our Bourbon Barrel Aged Red Wine comes from our best vineyard sites within Lake County and Sonoma County. The majority of the fruit comes from Lake County where volcanic, rocky soils and dramatic mountainside vineyards provide intense wines of structure and concentration. The remainder is from the Alexander Valley in Northern Sonoma County.The result is a synergy of intense favors and distinction.
