Supremacy

Sachua Vineyard, Smith Ranch, Casa De Vinas Vineyard

Bordeaux Blend

Livermore Valley

2014

Supremacy is the pinnacle of our winemaking efforts. Sourcing fruit from exceptional vineyards and crafting micro-lots of premium Bordeaux varieties allows us to pick and choose our favorite components to create a wine that represents our Valley’s 100+ years of Bordeaux winemaking experience. Supremacy uses the five noble Bordeaux varieties and represents the best barrel selection in each component’s given lot. To allow the wine to show its best on the date of release, the wine is bottle aged for about a year before its release to the public.

The Vintage

Our 2014 Supremacy is driven by classic red berry fruit and lush tannic structure, balanced by moderate acidity. The vintage produced wines with rich, round fruit, suggesting it will peak sooner than its 2012 and 2013 siblings, but is showing the best of the three right now. The wine showcases blackberry, black cherry, with chocolatey undertones. The wine will age gracefully over the next 8-10 years.
