If you love fruit-forward, big, rich wines, you have to try our La Vaquera.
When a bit of our Malbec, Petite Syrah, and Petit Verdot were left over after blending the Cabernet Sauvignon, we experimented by tossing them all together, creating a rich, inky and powerful "mountain" blend. It was so distinct and so delicious, that we decided to bottle it.
La Vaquera is "the cowgirl" in Spanish, and this wine is our little cowgirl. She isn’t following any rules. An untraditional blend and a bold character, this wine is always pushing the limits. The flavors and spiced texture are excellent when paired with smoked meats or wild game.
This wine hails mainly from the Swickard Vineyard in the northern reaches of the warm Calistoga AVA. Appropriately, it is owned by the founders of Five Dot Ranch, the well-regarded organic meat producer, and purveyor.
Listen to what Jeb Dunnuck had to say about our 2015 La Vaquera:
"As you’d expect given the blend, it’s a glass staining purple color and offers exotic, huge notes of blue fruits, graphite, flowers, and charcoal. Ripe, full-bodied, firm and angular on the palate, it packs tons of fruit and texture, is a terrific steakhouse red, and should keep for 10-15 years. 90 Points"
