Boeschen Vineyards

Gullwing Amalgam

Cabernet Sauvignon
St. Helena

5 cases produced

Highlights

  • We take our inspiration for this wine from the 1955 car in our collection: iconic, racy, classic
  • The Gullwing Amalgam is a barrel-selected Cabernet Sauvignon from our estate terraces in St. Helena
  • Blended with small amounts of Petit Verdot, the Amalgam is ready to spread its wings
  • Represents a high percentage of our best Cabernet Sauvignon, as total production is less than 500 cases

The wine speaks for itself, but the story behind the wine is more subtle. The Gullwing Amalgam is a nod from winemaker Doug Boeschen to his father, Dann, who used to race vintage cars. It is a recognition of the value in remembering to sprinkle in a little zest for life while treasuring the people and time that we have.
