1448®



-



the altude of our small family winery in the foo



thills



of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains.



1448®



-



The success and popularity of the ‘1448’ has create



d a



demand for this wine that has outgrown our ability



to produce it solely



from the surpluses of our varietal wine program. B



eginning with the 2011



vintage and connuing with the 2012 and 2013, we ha



ve selected a



number of some of my favorite vineyards to deliv



er fruit with an eye to



making 1448. I have always enjoyed working with Pe



te Sirah and Pet



Verdot and so these grapes establish the framework



for the 2013 wine.



We have maintained a wonderful element of the blend



; Tannat. The



structure and depth of this variety add a complex i



ntensity. We also



included small quanes of Cabernet Franc, Sangiove



se, Dolce5o, Pinot



Noir, Trincadera, Zinfandel, Barbera, Souzao, and



Syrah. Aged in French



oak, the fruit-forward flavors and barrel-aged text



ure and depth, along



with rich smooth tannins, remain hallmarks of this



wine.



The



2013



1448®



has a deep garnet color with bright



hues. The aromas lead with blue and black fruits,



with notes of red



currants. The bouquet features sweet vanilla and c



innamon spice scents.



The flavors are big and dense, with concentrated rip



e fruit framed by a so;



tannic structure. The succulent fruits flavors flow



into a smoky toasted



oak background and finish with a bright acid balanc



e.
