Winemaker Steve Heller Notes
Our vineyard sits at an altitude of 1300 feet in the Maycamas Mountain Range. It benefits from the cool evening Pacific Ocean breezes and receives early morning sun as it is above the fog line. The soils are classic Laniger loan Sonoma volcanics, ideal for premium grape growing. The grapes are fermented in one ton, insulated fermentors and manually punched down. Fermentations last 8-14 days and then are basket pressed. The 2016 H.L.R. Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep and dense wine. On the nose, currents, blackberries, plums, kirsch, vanilla, chocolate. It's complex, there's a lot to think about. It's mouth-filling with plum, black cherry, vanilla flavors and a slight touch of mint in the background.
