Cedar Lane Vineyard
Arroyo Seco

The Cedar Lane Vineyard is nestled neatly along the banks of the dried-out Arroyo Seco River. The coastal Monterey climate means cool foggy mornings with warmer afternoons, and these mild days allow the fruit to mature late into the growing season, avoiding overripe flavors. Aged in French and American oak barrels to highlight the natural dark red fruit tannins of the grape. The winemaking team barrel selected the top barrels based on depth of flavor and mouthfeel and are extremely proud of the result. It is reminiscent of wine found in the left bank, and will hold its own next to wines from the Bordeaux region of France. This elegant vintage possesses a wonderful minerality and aromas of licorice, spiced plum, clove, and blackberry. Pair with filet mignon, caramelized onions, roasted mushrooms, and aromatic cheeses such as gorgonzola. Enjoyable now but will continue to age for the next 10-years. C'est bon
