Heavyweight originated when our winemaker found an unusually robust barrel of Cabernet that also had soft tannins, meaning that it was
smooth and easy to enjoy. This flavor profile became the guideline
for each release; full bodied, richly flavored, well balanced wines with
a smooth, clean finish.
"I consider myself the “blendologist” of the family; for me, blending
is the most creative and enjoyable part of winemaking.”
Blending helps create different characteristics and flavor complexity for each Heavyweight release. Some blends are used to create fullness and structure while others are used for adding fragrance and complex taste. Sourced from various California regions, these blends offer the very best for each varietal. As the years pass the vintages change but the Heavyweight wines will continue to be the champions of good taste!
