2017 Napa Valley Cabernet
Planted at an elevation from 1,400 to 1,760 feet, the Guarachi Family Wines estate Bordeaux style vineyard of 28-planted acres reflects the best of Atlas Peak, exhibiting rocky volcanic soil in a jagged, mountainous landscape. Although subject to the typical maritime afternoon and evening cooling, the area tends to avoid the fogs that spill into the rest of Napa Valley. As such, Atlas Peak is influenced by full sunlight during the day, and the temperature drops at night, with warm, dry summers and cool, wet winters. Meadowrock, is located northeast of Napa, primarily within the Foss Valley and Soda Canyon areas.
VARIETALS: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
APPELLATION: Atlas Peak, Napa Valley
AGING: 20 months in 100% French oak
Production: 1,000 cases
Alcohol: 14.8 %
TASTING NOTES: Blackcurrant, clove, chocolate and black-tea aromas. Medium-bodied with sleek, fine-grained tannins. Fresh and flavorful with an earthy, mineral touch.
WINEMAKER NOTES: Due to the exposure, rocky soils, and wind, Meadowrock maintains hygiene in wet, cold vintages. We only harvest what is ripe. In difficult years we go through the blocks up to four times during the season, selecting and harvesting just-ripe clusters. All of our fruit goes through sorting belts, where we sort cluster and berries. We ferment is small t-bins with an objective to extract the most without compromising the quality and the style. We then age the wine in French-oak barrels for up to 20 months. –Julian Gonzalez, Winemaker

2017 G Bordeaux Blend
Sourced entirely from Guarachi’s Meadowrock Estate, grapes for“G” have been meticulously hand-picked, hand-sorted and night-harvested from the finest 30-year old vines found on the property’s rich rocky earth. Meadowrock sits facing Southwest at an elevation of 1,400 to 1,760 feet- perched on Atlas Peak above the fog line that often blankets the valley below.
VARIETALS: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 2% Petite Verdot
APPELLATION: Napa Valley
AGING: 20 months in 100% French oak, 40% new
ALCOHOL: 14.8 %
TASTING NOTES: This inky red 92% Cabernet, 6% Malbec, and 2% Petite Verdot is rich and ripe with concentrated black cherry, plums and sweet tobacco. Firm structure with vibrating acidity possesses a terrific richness and depth. Lingering fruit flavors and minerals allows a long lasting finish.
