Walter Schug had a working relationship with the Sangiacomo Family since his days at Joseph Phelps. It was only natural to begin to identify individual barrels that exemplify the quality farming of the Sangiacomos. This year we once again looked to the nearby Fedrick Ranch in the Petaluma Gap as a base for the blend. Its warm richness balanced by the raciness of the Tallgrass and El Novillero ranches. The individual barrels were selected in conjunction with our Heritage Club Members and select auction winners. This wine is perfect for the collector's cellar and will continue to age gracefully for up to 10 years.
