Wine enthusiasts will often ask, “Will this wine Age?”. During this seminar we will explore how wine ages in the bottle over time. We will taste three different vintages of the same white and red wines to demonstrate how wine evolves over time. Additionally, we will discuss optimal cellar conditions that create the environment for proper aging.

Our Far Coast Vineyard is a cool site surrounded by redwood forests, almost two hours north of the Russian River on a Sonoma Coast mountain ridge. It is an area that some call the ‘True Sonoma Coast.’ Others would simply describe the distant vineyard site as ‘the middle of nowhere.’ Far Coast Vineyard sits just south of the town of Annapolis at 800-1000 feet above sea level. The soils at this ridge-top site are well-drained Goldridge sandy loam, which helps to intensify the sense of minerality and focus in the wine produced from this vineyard. There are less than 300-9L cases produced per vintage. $75 a bottle retail.

Stonestreet Estate Vineyard is the story of a family’s vision to defy the limits of California winegrowing. Jess Stonestreet Jackson and Barbara Banke established the estate vineyards in 1995, and their son Christopher Jackson and his wife Ariel continue the legacy today — and the middle name “Stonestreet” has now been passed from father to son for three generations. Stonestreet is one of the most expansive and multi-faceted mountain vineyards in the world and produces a distinctive collection of single vineyard wines —powerful Cabernet Sauvignon, soulful Chardonnay and electric Sauvignon Blanc.
As a blend of our best Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard sites, the Estate bottling is one of the most compelling illustrations of the Stonestreet Mountain. We blend this wine with discerning precision, balancing aromatic intrigue, texture and the Mayacamas’ signature structural elements
into a pure reflection of the vintage. There are less than 8,000 cases produced per vintage. $60 a bottle retail.
