Our Sagrantino is a bold wine with flavors of cranberry, raspberry, mocha and earthiness.

These rare Sagrantino grapes came from Tracy Hills located in San Joaquin County. The vineyard has been designated a mineral resource zone by the U.S. Geological Service due to the high gravel content of the soil. To increase the intensity of flavor, deficit irrigation (watering below crop requirements) is utilized.

Grapes were destemmed with minimal crushing. Must was pumped to a temperature controlled stainless steel tank and inoculated with a pure strain of wine yeast which ensured a complete and healthy fermentation. Grapes were pressed and the juice moved to a settling tank. Within a few days, 35% of the wine was racked and moved onto new French oak with the balance remaining in neutral cooperage for 15 months aging. The wine was racked once more during the course of aging.
