Allow us to introduce you to a radar-evader way up on the west side of Spring Mountain that you need to know about. Their reserve Cab blew our doors off! There’s a reason we make such a big fuss over this property. Black currants, cherries, toasted pecans and molasses are wrapped in velvety tannins and a sweet, dark chocolate finish. This is a very serious wine that will drink very well in the near-term, from a great vintage to boot!
Viluko Vineyards is a modest family winery on 37 acres high in the Mayacamas range, in between Napa and Santa Rosa, just off of the Calistoga road on the Santa Rosa side of the mountain. Viluko is named for Viluco, a town in Chile's Maipo valley where bay area commercial real estate magnate Pedro Arroyo grew up on his grandfather's ranch.<p> Viluko's Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are farmed organically, and sit at between 600 and 1100 feet in elevation. They are the only vineyards for miles around. Viluko has been certified organic by CCOF since 2005. The winemaker here is none other than Tim Milos, who is our winemaker for all Bounty Hunter brands. Look for balance, plush personalities, and superb value in these wines!
