Las Posadas Vineyards is owned by legendary viticulturist, David Abreu. It sits above the fog line on Howell Mountain at about 600m elevation, surrounded by a protected forest of fir and pine. Red Aiken soils are layered over white tufa, and the rocks that littered the site before it was planted now form walls defining the property.
This unique terrain gives the wine an incredibly seductive bouquet of cassis, blueberries, tobacco and rose petals. Rich, concentrated, full-bodied, and structured, it’s a brilliant wine that yearns for a powerful pairing.
Fruit for the 2021 was harvested from 27th September to 4th October, and the wine spent 23 months in 100% new French oak (Darnajou and Taransaud), prior to bottling on 21st August, 2023.
