Medlock Ames Fifty Tons Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Nearly a quarter of a century ago, college best friends Ames Morison and Chris Medlock James moved from New York City to make wine in Sonoma’s Bell Mountain Ranch. Today, all of their grapes are 100% estate grown and 100% CCOF Organically Certified. In their continued focus on sustainability and regenerative farming, Medlock Ames plans to incorporate an electric Monarch tractor into their viticulture practices in the near future.? Named after the 50 tons of rock that had to be moved by hand to restore the vineyards’ natural terraces. This 100% Cab is luxurious and with silky tannins and integrated oak. Ripe dark berry flavours weave with notes of mocha and clove, leading to a finessed finish. ? Medlock Ames Fifty Tons is a member-exclusive. Direct shipping is available in most U.S. states for other Medlock Ames wines. Tasted September 2021.
Process: 19 months in 40% new oak; 40% American oak.
