Amaro Vineyard, Sonoma Valley, Sugarloaf Ridge District
Michael Amaro’s Vineyard is near the top of Sugarloaf Ridge in the Mayacamus Mountains framing the east side of the Sonoma Valley. Robert says the best Cabernets come from mountain vineyards. He selected his favorite rows to create this Meritage style wine. This blend was assembled from the best tasting barrels of each lot, and was aged for four years in a selection of French and Pennsylvania oak barrels. It represents the best of the vineyard and the vintage.
