Gundlach Bunschu Sonoma County Mountain Cuvee 2012

From the winemaker:

This Bordeaux-inspired wine honors the style and balance of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grown in Sonoma County. We source vineyards to create balance in the wine, fruit, tannin and acid, choosing plots that exhibit the style we seek. For Merlot, we want grapes that ripen well and have an expressive personality and consistency. Then we find Cabernet Sauvignon which provides a darkness to the wine – we source some of the fruit from Rhinefarm. Primarily, we use only two growers outside of our estate to create the cuvée, or blend, controlling how the vineyard is farmed. This method allows us to get to know the vineyard and find the best way to approach it. During the winemaking process, we blend vineyard blocks together, evaluate and then create an oak program to place the finishing touches on the wine.
