For Ed, a third generation California winemaker himself, couldn’t pass up his dream of starting a project with his son. And away from the Napa Valley machine, he could go back to doing what he loved to do above all, making small lot wine off the tiniest of parcels.
It doesn’t get any smaller than today’s Cabernet, cut exclusively from the steep 10-acre terraced vineyard of the Sbragia family doctor, Dr. Andolsen (I kid you not). Located deep in Dry Creek’s western foothills, the Cab shows off Ed’s favorite blocks and it’s absolutely ridiculous good for the price. This has long been an area where Cabernet has been overlooked for Pinot Noir and Zinfandel, but with Ed and his son at the helm, Sonoma County’s stock is on the rise.
Aged 18 months in new and used French oak barrels, the wine shows off a decadent mix of blue and purple fruits on the nose with a floral component and then layers of black fruit and a hint of sage on the pallet that hits you in waves and finishes long and strong.
