The Alchemists

 

George Troquato, Winemaker & Alejandro Aldama, Cellar Master

The Grape

Carignan is of Spanish origin and is widely planted in Southern France. Mourvèdre is grown around the world, including the Rhône and Provence regions of France. Malbec is one of six grapes allowed in red Bordeuax wines. As Rosé varietals, these grapes produce a wine with big structure, great body and acidity, and traditionally a pale salmon color. 

The Land

Sandy Lane Vineyard overlooks the Sacramento Delta near the town of Oakley. Gnarly head-trained vines were planted in the early 20th century in soils that are as sandy as any beach. Amber Knolls Vineyard in Lake County is 2,000 feet in elevation and comprised of volcanic soils. Both of these sites have well-drained, dry-farmed soils; and warm days and cools nights.

The Season

 

The winter of 2017 brought huge amounts of much-needed rain. An overall warm year with one major heat spike in August brought a slightly below-average size crop with good color and flavor.
