This Bordeaux blend is made from grapes grown on, what else, our fence lines. To the south – Cabernet Sauvignon, the west – Merlot, leaving Petite Verdot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc at our vineyard entrance.
My reputation as a winemaker was born from my early Bordeaux blends, winning the Amateur Sweepstakes Red in 1992 at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair.
From the spectacular 2012 vintage, this is the third release of FenceLine. With the large crop to work with, I was able to keep more lots separate and blend just before bottling. The result is what I call a Meritage masterpiece that needs to be tasted to fully appreciate.
