2016 Equipo Red Blend
"Equipo" is the Spanish term for "team," and we are fortunate to have had the same team ever since we first planted our vines. As an homage to them, we allocated a portion of our vineyard to our “equipo,” and gave them full control over that section. The crew is entrusted with farming decisions regarding irrigation, fertilization, pest control, pruning and everything else Mother Nature might throw at them! A portion of the profits are given back to the team as a small token of our appreciation for all that they do.
The team's block of Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in a combination of new and neutral French Oak, with Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc added for depth.
