2010 Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is slow to ripen and needs an exceptionally good year to produce an exceptionally good wine. Fortunately, this was the case in 2010. We ferment this wine at much lower temperatures than is usual with hot climate cabernets and blend just enough Old Vines Merlot, malbec and cabernet franc to round out this sumptuous wine. The 2010 OV Cabernet Sauvignon is lush and smooth across the palate with flavors of tangy red currants, rich black cherries and creamy raspberries. This Old Vines Cabernet will improve in the cellar for 15-20 years. $50/bottle -- sold on an allotment basis to Lenz Subscribers
2007 Old Vines Merlot - Unfiltered 
Lenz Old Vines Merlot is made from grapes grown in our oldest blocks, planted more than 30 years ago.  Our Old Vines Merlot shows classic merlot dark-fruit characters of black plums, black cherries and raspberries.  We reserve the Old Vines designation for exceptional vintages that exhibit great depth, complexity and aging potential.  These wines are special when we release them but continue to improve in the cellar for 20 years.

2013 Old Vines Chardonnay
The Old Vines style is intended to emphasize fruit intensity, balance and elegance.  We use very limited barrel fermentation and oak-aging tends to be 'neutral,' meaning we only use older barrels that allow the wine to achieve greater complexity and flavor concentration but leave less of an oak fingerprint on the wine.  Old Vines Chardonnay is focused on flavors of apple and pear with notes of fig.  $30/bottle -- sold on an allotment basis to Lenz Subscribers

2001 Cuvée RD  -- SOLD OUT
When we sell out of a particular sparkling wine vintage, we usually hold back 60 or 70 cases to continue aging and improving in the bottle. The French refer to Champagnes made using this 'late-finishing' process as 'RD', or Récemment dégorgé (recently disgorged). The 2001 is rich and sumptuous with a certain nutty earthiness that comes with the process, overlaying the original - - but muted - - fruit base of the wine.  $60/bottle
