Getting to know a vineyard is a romance. Our mountain estate was established in 2001, followed by redevelopment of select blocks eleven years later. A new bond was forged between the land and these young vines.
Courtship is a sophisticated, vibrant expression of cabernet sauvignon, rigorously selected and complete in its own right.
The debut release of courtship is evidence that, farmed with care, a vineyard at any stage can offer wines of beauty and meaning.
An abundance of winter rains along with galvanizing late-season heat waves gave way to a wine of generous fruit and gratifying depth. Notes of juicy blueberry and cherry lend an easy, relaxed quality, underlaid with dried sage and a cool floral complexity.
