Our Tribute is blend of classic Bordeaux varieties. This wine was created as Our Tribute to our fathers.  For us, The Calling is about pursuing a passion, inspiring others, and making beautifully handcrafted wines that our fathers would be proud of.  Our Tribute is blend of classic Bordeaux varieties. The aromas are rich and spicy with notes of blue and black berry fruits layered over hints of chocolate, brown spice and vanilla. The palate is robust yet elegant with silky tannins and flavors of black plum and coffee married with a seductive cinnamon spice.  It boasts the dense structure and balanced, velvety tannins that the Alexander Valley is famous for.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The aromas are rich and spicy with notes of blue and black berry fruits layered over hints of chocolate, brown spice and vanilla. The palate is robust yet elegant with silky tannins and flavors of black plum and coffee married with a seductive cinnamon spice.
Vineyard Notes
The 2013 harvest was one of finesse and elegance. Slightly cooler than 2012, the weather allowed our Alexander Valley vineyard to ripen evenly, with a long and extended hang time, resulting in a wine of intense flavor and elegance. The Cabernet Sauvignon was so well balanced and complex that only a small amount of Malbec was used to round out the wine. The 2013 vintage will age perfectly.
Production Notes
99% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec
Winemaker Notes
The Alexander Valley consists of a broad valley floor bisected by the Russian River. It is surrounded by hills that block the coastal fog, keeping the region warmer than most of its neighbors. This climate, combined with well-drained, gravelly soils, help the Alexander Valley produce some of the finest Bordeaux grapes available in California.
Production
Grapes were hand-sorted and gently crushed. After native-yeast fermentation, the wine went through an extended maceration period to soften the tannins, and malolactic fermentation occurred in barrel. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered to preserve complexity.
