Lot #68 APERTURE CELLARS
FARROW RANCH DEBUT
Farrow Ranch Vineyard
- Alexander Valley
ABOUT THE WINE:
This barrel auction lot marks the first vintage of Aperture’s Cabernet Sauvignon from Farrow Ranch in Alexander Valley. Acquired in 2021, it is the newest estate property for the winery. Winemaker Jesse Katz and the Aperture team have been working with this vineyard site since 2010 to produce several wines for a series of different wine portfolios, including the Devil Proof Farrow Ranch Malbec.
Aperture Cellars champions a range of stunning Bordeaux-style wines from Sonoma County. Founded in 2009 by winemaker Jesse Katz, Aperture wines are crafted from cool-climate vineyards. Wanting to craft wines on par with the quality and refinement that are so integral to Bordeaux wines, Jesse set roots in Sonoma County, believing it offers the best of both worlds: New World fruit and Old World elegance.
Winemaker Jesse Katz brings his distinct winemaking approach to “Farrow Ranch Debut,” which expresses bright, bold Sonoma County fruit in a refined and elegant composition. “Like my father’s ability to tell amazing stories through his photography, my greatest joy is bringing together the intricacies of space, place, and time – in essence, the terroir – that make an exceptional bottle of wine,” says Jesse.
