90 Points! 2011 Founder’s Collection Cabernet Sauvignon, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, August 2014

In awarding the wine 90 points, editor Virginie Boone writes, “Juicy with ripe tannins, it tastes lovingly hand-crafted, detailed and focused in black currant, berry and leather. Though rich and luxurious it retains ample natural acidity to buoy its way through a meal or through several years of aging.”

Thank you Virginie, for recognizing our wine as ‘lovingly handcrafted,’ for indeed we do hand craft our wines with love and patience, and tremendous respect for the Livermore terroir.

What differentiates true hand crafted wines from the more mass produced, larger brands?  Please see my blog entry, “Not all Wines are Vins de Terroir.”
