You should only make wines you love to drink...
Yates Family Vineyard is located at the end of Redwood Road in the western Mayacamus Mountains. The vineyard is small - only about 35 acres - and planted primarily to cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. The elevation is over 1,100 feet and steeply sloping. We have produced a cabernet sauvignon wine from this vineyard since 2014.
Our 2017 Yates Family Vineyard Cabernet offers aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of floral notes, spice and earthiness. The mouth expresses blue and black fruit, a full body, firm tannins and a chewy finish. Shows focus and brightness. More old world in style than our other cabernet wines - this wine is simply delicious with veal or lamb - or anything with truffles!
