VISUALS // In the Vast Unknown // American Red Wine // 2021
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
Harvest: September 2021
Description: Rancho Coda sits like a crown above the middle reach of the Russian River Valley. At an elevation of nearly 1000 ft at its high point, the vines sit on top of the fog that rolls in along the river below. The steep slopes bask in the sun while being cooled by nearly consistent breezes that whip across the ridges from the Pacific, which is just 15 miles west. The soils are comprised of fractured sandstone with quartz and schist veins covered by a thin layer of sandy clay loam.
Vinification: de-stemmed and fermented with native yeast in open top bins. Aged in neutral puncheon for two years.
Bottling: 750 ml Antique Green, corked. Contains sulfites
