Wine Notes

2017 was an excellent year for red varietals. A generally lighter yield in the vineyards provided us with dark, robust wines. Technicolor features Syrah, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Grenache, with the Malbec and Grenache moderating the tannins to produce a very drinkable and flavorful wine.

Sonoma County is home to multiple AVAs which offer a wide range of microclimates and geography, each exerting unique influences on the aromas and flavors of the fruit grown there. The majority of the fruit for the 2017 Director’s Cut Technicolor is sourced from Dry Creek Valley, one of the earliest grape growing sites in California. The soil is primarily gravelly and sandy loam – deep, well drained, and fertile dirt that produces good crops of flavorful grapes. Long, warm days and coastal cooling in the evening enables the grapes to mature slowly while retaining acidity and balance.
