Red Rock Terrace, a warm microclimate, is 7 acres of north facing vineyard. The red tinted soil is high in iron content. The wine from Red Rock Terrace is the most accessible and earliest drinkable of all our wines. Our winemaker describes Red Rock Terrace as "having velvety tannins, rich and well balanced, medium dark ruby color with cherry, mint and black currant flavors."

Wine SpectatorAn austere, rustic style that veers from ripe cherry and plum fruit to dry, chewy, gritty tannins, finishing with a mouth-puckering aftertaste and a twinge of bitterness. Fans of bare-knuckle Cabernet will find this most pleasing. Drink now through 2014. 700 cases made.
