The compass rose of Sonoma, Ram’s Gate Winery sits where Sonoma Valley, Sonoma Coast and Carneros meet. The fruit for this special Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from Bismark Mountain Vineyard in the Moon Mountain AVA. Jeb Dunnuck writes, “Rocking notes of crème de cassis, crushed rocks, violets and lead pencil shavings all flow to a concentrated, full-bodied effort that has plenty of classic Sonoma minerality and structure.” No shortage of aging potential for this beauty; It could bring another twenty years of pleasure.

Lastly, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Bismark Mountain Vineyard comes from the Moon Mountain AVA, which lies on the opposite side of the Mayacamas Mountain from Mount Veeder and spent 18 months in 75% new French oak. Rocking notes of crème de cassis, crushed rocks, violets, and lead pencil shavings all flow to a concentrated, full-bodied effort that has plenty of classic Sonoma minerality and structure. It's going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 20-25 years or more.
