A “trig” has been used for many years to establish boundary lines. Trigonometrical stations were set on the top of hills and used as surveying sites. Just as my father was a land surveyor and used these trigs for establishing reference, so do I when it comes to well-known vineyard sites.
The Diamond Dust Vineyard sits on a benchland site in the Alexander Valley facing south/southeast. This unique topography protects the vineyard from the wind. The early morning fog and deep gravelly loam soils are ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Indeed, one of the great uncompromising vineyards of the Alexander Valley and certainly a “trig point” for growing classy Bordeaux varietals.
Beautiful purple and ruby hues fill the glass. Aromas of dark spices, black currant, black tea, and coffee bean. Juicy fruit flavors of cherry, raspberry and blackberry. Smooth, soft, and supple finish with spicy accents.
