About the Wine

Founder and Vintner Ralph Hertelendy and winemaking consultant Phillip Corallo-Titus create wines that meet in the middle of their styles, birthing beautiful compromising expressions that wouldn’t otherwise have been made. They have formed a symbiotic relationship over the years, and continue to push the envelope with their winemaking techniques in the pursuit towards elegance, complexity, and winemaking perfection.

   Since the 2016 inception with their 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon debut, they quickly recieved a festoon of awards (Gold at Texsom, Double Gold, Best in Class at Sunset International Wine Competition) and ratings (consistently between 95-99 points by the world’s most influential critics).Combining the highly positive reviews and incredibly low production (750 cases annually), a cult following ensued.

   With each harvest, they strive to handcraft the most balanced wine that expresses the unique character and complexity of superb terroir. A winemaking practice adhering to the “Rome wasn’t built in a day” philosophy. 

The red wines typically barrel age for 23 months, and the whites barrel age for 19 months, and all wines are then bottle aged another year to settle before it’s poured in your glass. That makes their total process from vine to table approximately 3 years of the utmost care and detailed attention.

"We believe wine is liquid art, and we hope you appreciate our masterpieces." - Ralph Hertelendy

Composition: 50% Merlot, 46% Cab Franc, 3% Malbec, 1% Petite Verdot
Appellation: Howell Mountain, Pritchard Hill, Atlas Peak

Tasting Notes:
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it explodes from the glass with bombastic redcurrant jelly, black raspberry, mulberries and baked plum scents with suggestions of camphor, cast-iron, cedar chest, pencil lead and lavender plus a touch of underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate packs in the red and black berry flavors, supported with soft, rounded tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing on a lingering mineral note. 

A Showstopper Red With Incredible Aging Potential!
