91 POINTS - Wine Enthusiast "A big structure of firm tannins and tangy acidity supports concentrated red and black cherries in his full-bodied, vibrant and appetizing wine. Best from 2024." - Jim Gordon
This big, lush estate cuvée has balanced aromas of ripe fruit, cocoa and spice. Full-bodied with layered tannins, Her Majesty has a flavor profile of ripe blue fruits and a rich finish that entices the palate. The structure of this wine will allow for aging upwards of 20 years.
All fruit for this wine is sourced from our vineyard. Once all of the wine is fermented in small lots and barrel-aged a bit, we take the very best barrel selection of each variety and blend it into Her Majesty. Aging total 16 months in previously used French oak. The Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon provide the structure and backbone of this wine, while the Zinfandel and Tempranillo bring out more fruit-forward characteristics. This wine is meant exemplify the vintage, the vineyard and our terroir.
