Taken from Granite 'Swan Song' 2001750ml
Produced by acclaimed winemaker Gideon Beinstock (co-founder of Clos Saron) during his tenure at the now-defunct Renaissance Vineyard and Winery, this is an extraordinary organic Cabernet Sauvignon made from vines planted in the late 1970s on ungrafted rootstock over extremely rocky, mineral-rich, granitic soils in the Sierra Foothills. Barely 400 cases of this stunning red were produced. It is perfectly evolved and energetic, filled with dusty berries, savory dried herbs, light smoke and cedar. Hailing from 2001, one of California’s best vintages, decant for at least two hours to allow this magical red to reach its full potential and enjoy alongside a beautiful steak or savory mushroom polenta for a taste of aged California wine at its finest. “Swan Song” is, in Beinstock’s words, “a handpicked treasure from the Golden Age of the Renaissance Vineyard,” and as the name suggests, may very well be the last release of Beinstock’s wine from this unique terroir. Great for collectors!
