The King of Red Wines, Cabernet's reputation was established decades ago by the great estates of Bordeaux. Grown on a select portion of our vineyard this select 3 acres was designed to enhance the proper climate, heat and sun conditions that best suit the grape's personality. The climatic conditions from which our wine is grown allows for a 30 degree change from dawn til dusk, thus allowing the grape to mature to its full personality. As the fruit matures through the growing season, water is reduced to ensure the grape reaches it full capacity for flavor similar to the method used in the Bordeaux areas of France. The results are a true vintner’s estate wine that will please the sophisticated palate of true wine connoisseurs.
Pinot Noir: Wins Awards Two Years in A Row
Pinot Noir is a black wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. The name is derived from the French words for "pine" and"black" alluding to the grape variety's tightly clustered dark purple pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit. Our style of Pinot was cultivated similar to the origins of Burgundy Noir which is the original French version of this varietal, thus the results are a darker intense flavor. Grown on the hillsides of De Luz California in a higher elevation, where the grape can cultivate at a slower rate, the vine gets the right amount of light, carefully watched to ensure it is not venerable to adverse conditions. As the Pinot Noir grape is a smaller grape with less yield and in turn this makes Pinot Noir by description a more expensive grape to grow and produce, the winemakers has carefully selected the best yeast for the final preparation of the wine. The results are rich and complex to the palate, and we feel has truly captured what can be describes as an award winning Pinot. With a limit of 75 cases a year our Pinot Noir will become a wine every collector should have in their cellar.
De Luz: Award Winning Dessert Style Wine
In it's first year pre-release competition, DeLuz was a Silver Medal Winner at the San Diego County Fair and an Honorable Mention Award Winner at the Orange County Fair where it compteted against over 200 vintages. In 2012, De Luz was awarded a Bronze Medal in its first International Wine Competition held in Finger Lakes, New York. De Luz translation in English means “of light” or “clarity”. We have prepared “De Luz” along the lines of two things that a connoisseur thinks of when they think of clarity and brightness; Diamonds and fine liquor. We had in mind with our preparation of De Luz a unique taste that would be savored and caressed. A taste that would linger with the “fait accompli” that your palate has been satisfied. An affair that would linger long past the experience itself and leave you longing for more. “De Luz” an experience that never leaves you.
De Luz is a unique combination of cabernet grape and dragon fruit, with limited bottling of 80 cases.
