The 2015 Arts and Crafts is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvinon, and Cabernet Franc. Each barrel in this blend was carefully selected for its integrity as a no sulfites wine. The fruit comes from two organic vineyards in Santa Ynez Valley, Miralaguna and Coqulicot. 2015 was an exceptionally warm year causing a drastic low yield with highly concentrated fruit. This fruit was hand picked, fermented for 12 days on its skins, gently pressed, and aged for 5 months in french oak barrels. Twelve barrels were produced.
This wine has been in bottle for nearly a year. It has notes of dark blue fruit, tomato vine, dusty granite, roasted bell pepper, sage and tobacco. This wine will age exceptionally well over the next 10+ years.
