2013 Update

Harvest is now long past us and we are starting to think about bottling our 2011 wines. This weekend we are getting our wonderful, new 2011 Chardonnay ready for sale by putting the final touches on the bottles - the labels. We are also running through all of our 2011 barrels in order to select the blends for the 2011 bottlings. After a long morning of tasting through the barrels and blending samples together, we are very pleased to annouce that we will be offering three different Bordeaux bottlings in 2011 - a Cuevas Vineyard Cabernet, a Reserve Paso Robles Cabernet (100% Halter Ranch fruit), and a Paso Robles Merlot. If all goes as planned, these wines should be bottled by May and will then see some extended bottle time in order to let them settle down so that when you are ready to buy them they are ready to drink. Stay tuned for updates on these wines as well as our 2012 vintage updates.  Salud!

Napa Cabernet Bottling

The date has been set! We will be bottling our 2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon this Wednesday.  The mobile bottler will be coming in and working with us to get the one single barrel of Cabernet into the approximately 276 bottles.  We are very happy with flavors and structure of the Cabernet. This vintage should really be a crowd pleaser. To make this even more special, we have put together some really nice packaging for this vintage. Besides for great wine, we have ordered a larger, more robust bottle, special corks that are longer and include the vintage and AVA designate, and a modified label that has embossing and a spot varnish. You may also catch that we have increased the size of our Alma Sol logo on the front label. So, keep you eye out for more information on the actual bottling and the release information.
