lackstone Winery was founded in 1990 with the goal of producing approachable, full-bodied, well-balanced wines. We believe in good friends, good food and juicy conversations-and our wines are the ideal complement. Winemaker Gary Sitton, a Sonoma native with more than 10 years of winemaking experience in Sonoma county, is passionate about this winegrowing region.
Gary believes that, "Sonoma County is one of the most fabulous places in the world to live and make wine. The wonderful combination of topography, landscape, weather, and people that is found here offers me the resources to make exactly the kinds of wines I like: expressive, rich and balanced, full of fruit and varietal character. I live here, work here, play here, and am raising a family here. That gives me a real insight into this region." Gary holds a Master of Science in Enology and Viticulture from the renowned winemaking program at the University of California Davis.
A vibrant violet color, an invitingly complex wine full of deep blackberry, plum, and spice on the nose and a rich mouthfeel, rounded by vanilla and roasted oak scents, and a finish that’s long and smooth. The Malbec and Cabernet Franc within the blend add particularly soft, round texture and mature length, as well as fuller, riper flavors.
