TimeFrame Cabernet Sauvignon, 2017

Produced by River Lane Vineyard

This wine is made of Cabernet grapes from River Lane Vineyard. Refined tannins give it a bold flavor. At the same time, the geology of the Alexander Valley and the hills that surround it contribute a minerality that is enhanced by hints of cassis and blackberry.

Nine years ago, we purchased a small, four acre vineyard that was politely described as “needing work.” We went to work, hiring a viticulturist, replacing the well and irrigation systems, planting a number of new vines. We added potassium and boron to the soil to support root growth. For the first few years we sold the entire harvest to other wineries. In 2013 we were ready to make our own wine label. With the help of Jim Richard, a local winemaker, we experimented with multiple blends for several weeks. We finally settled on a classic blend of 75% cabernet (all from our own vineyard), and a blend of merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec to balance the wine.
