Six Sigma Ranch Red Blend Lake County Cuvée Pique-Nique 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

This deep purple red Bordeaux-style blend is the perfect daily picnic and dinner wine. It reveals complex notes of lovely blackberry, blueberry and dark chocolate followed by attractive hints of coffee, licorice, cedar, spice box and delicate flowers such as lilac and violets. Explosive flavors in the mouth of beautiful ripe fruit, a rich, lush mouth-feel and amazing length on the palate. Well concealed tannins and plenty of fruit character will also allow for cellaring.

(The vineyards are affectionately named for family members.) In between the two vineyards, you will pass our winery tucked off to the north side of the road.

At each end of Asbill valley, you can view vineyards - Michael's Vineyard near the front gate and Else's Vineyard across the valley floor from our tasting room. (The vineyards are affectionately named for family members.) In between the two vineyards, you will pass our winery tucked off to the north side of the road. From the tasting room, a narrow, winding mountain road leads another 2 miles up to Christian's, Marianne's, and Annette's Vineyards in the Diamond Mine, located on the gentle southeast slopes of an 1700-foot peak near the southeastern end of our property. We named this location the Diamond Mine because it has an abundance of "Lake County Diamonds," small volcanic pieces of quartz that litter the red volcanic soil and shimmer in the sunlight. A guided tour through the vineyards just begins to scratch the surface of all the ranch has to offer. You can see on the map that existing and future vineyards occupy only a small fraction of the ranch. Read less
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
