    Winemaker Notes

    Deep crimson red in color, this wine exhibits luscious, complex hints of black plums, blackberries and espresso, highlighted with wisps of cedar and truffle. Rich and concentrated dark fruit, with layers of wild berry, black currant and mocha fill the palate. This is an elegant, medium-bodied wine with polished, ripe tannins that showcase the smooth fruity finish.

    Pair with grilled meats, leg of lamb and hard cheeses such as Parmigiano and Romano.

    Lyeth, , California
    Lyeth
    Established by Chip Lyeth in 1981, Lyeth was one of the first wineries in California to pursue the unique complexity and composition achieved by the marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon with the other major Bordeaux varieties, now known as the Meritage style.

    A rugged and topographically diverse cool-climate appellation with a rich history, the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA stretches from Half Moon Bay to just above Monterey county. Elevation ranges from just 800 feet to upwards of 3000, and microclimates vary substantially depending on which side of the mountains the vineyards lay. Cool ocean winds and fog play an important role as well. This can be a challenging region in which to grow grapes, but it is well worth the effort. Wine has been made here since the 1800s, most notably from the legendary Ridge Vineyards, whose Monte Bello vineyard garners international admiration.

    [Pinot Noir], Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon are the stars of this region, and Merlot and Zinfandel also perform quite well. Santa Cruz Mountains wines are noted for their distinct minerality and balanced acidity. Often these wines can be aged for many years. Organic and sustainable vineyard practices are becoming increasingly common.
