2012 Small Lot Sonata
Our 2012 Sonata exhibits aromas and flavors of currant, dark berry, chocolate and spice with bold tannins that lead to a rich, extended finish.
The Syrah grapes were harvested from the Hayes ranch and the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were harvested from the Smith ranch
Fermentation took place in small one-ton open top bins and the grapes were punched down by hand twice daily, as well as small stainless steel tanks where the must was gently pumped over twice daily.
The wine was aged for 17 months in French, Eastern European, American, and neural oak barrels.
