Wine Maker Notes
We sourced this wine from prime Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards throughout California, spots where warm, sunny days develop grapes to rich, balanced fruit expression with intriguing hints of thyme. A small percentage of Merlot adds depth and complexity to the deep blackberry and cherry character, and oak aging fully integrates the tannins.
Back in 1985, around a friendly game of Liar’s Dice, Tim Murphy, Dale Goode and Dave Ready decided to make their love of fine wines official. They began creating Fume Blanc and Chardonnay from Murphy Ranch and Murphy-Goode Vineyard in Sonoma County. Fast forward 20 vintages and today Murphy-Goode, has added more wines to the line-up, including world-class Bordeaux varieties from Alexander Valley. Today, David Ready, Jr., is the winemaker, and the winery remains family owned. Wines, family, friends, fun. It's been a Goode ride.
