Lot #40 KENDALL-JACKSON
Alden Vineyard 68%, Kellogg Vineyard 32%
- Sonoma County
ABOUT THE WINE:
“Dos Vistas” is a blend from a single barrel, hand selected from Winemaster Randy Ullom, 2022 Sonoma County Barrel Auction Icon and Winemaker Susan Lueker’s favorite vineyards, Alden Vineyard and Kellogg Vineyard. Thoughtfully crafted for the 2022 Sonoma County Barrel Auction, it has two of everything for double the wine pleasure: two views from two mountains, two vineyards in two appellations and two winemakers creating an exquisite wine from two grapes!
These two high elevation vineyards planted to Bordeaux varietals have thin soils and produce wines with concentration and finesse. The Alexander Valley fruit is vibrant and fresh with focused tannins and the Knights Valley grapes have graphite, spice and silky tannins. The blending of the two vineyards creates a phenomenal expression of Bordeaux varieties from Sonoma County.
The hillside fruit was fermented as a small lot and was tasted daily with an individual extraction regime, then aged in barrel for 24 months for integration of oak and fruit. The intense dark full berry tones are silky, elegant and concentrated with ripe tannins, resulting in a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc blend from the mountains, hillsides and ridges of Alexander Valley and Knights Valley. This wine may be enjoyed now and for years to come.
