Silver Medals & Wine & Spirits!
We won four silver medals at this year's West Coast Wine Competition, the 25th annual, held in Santa Rosa, CA! Taking a silver medal each were our 2006 Sauvignon Blanc, 2006 Viognier, 2006 Chardonnay and our 2004 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
And more exciting news - Wine & Spirits' June2007 issue features our 2005 Cabernet Franc, rating it at 89 points!!"This is the second vintage of cabernet franc from Pat Spangler. He sources it from a parcel of the Sundown Vineyard (owned by Quail Run Vineyards) that sits at about 1,700 feet and stands apart from other areas for its very poor soil and large diurnal temperature swings. It offers classic franc aromas of violets, rosemary and sour cherry plus brighter cherry jam flavors. The ripeness flattens out the wine slightly, but it has the structure for something with a little spice, like carnitas." (350 cases)
