This wine is a blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown at Roblar Estate Vineyard. With our vineyard’s light rocky soil and moderate climate, the grapes develop a wonderful richness of flavor. The lush mouthfeel of Syrah and the depth and structure of the Cabernet come together to create an optimum (“Ottimo”) blend.
Crushed into small open top fermenters and cold-soaked for two days, the must was inoculated and fermented on the skins for two weeks to develop full rich flavor and structure.
