Highlights

  • Encore ll is a reprisal of my homage to my father’s vision of 44 years ago, first-growth quality wine
  • 100% mountain estate Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Clone 337 and 50% Clone 15 made from 19-year-old vines
  • After 41 years of farming on the slopes of the Spring Mountain District nested appellation, it’s great to see results from truly mature vineyards
  • Powerful, rich, deep fruit, spice and polish all come together in this truly layered, age-worthy wine

After 41 years of farming, we have discovered that the best fruit we have seen comes from fully mature, sustainably farmed vineyards. This one-of-a-kind wine is an equal blend of two Cabernet Sauvignon clones, 337 & 15, that were planted 19 years before this harvest. It is safe to say this wine is made from truly mature vineyards. Powerful, rich, deep fruit, spice and polish all come together in this layered, age-worthy wine.
