New Release: 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Appassimento

We are utterly thrilled to introduce our second bottling of Appassimento Cabernet. Arguably the most important red wine grape in the world, a distinguished Cabernet Sauvignon is one of life’s great pleasures. We choose our Cabernet sites carefully: warm days with lots of sunshine, cool nights to preserve the balance of the fruit, well-drained soils, and gentle slopes. Our Appassimento Cab is made in a style similar to northern Italy’s celebrated Amarone in which the grapes are allowed to dry slowly on the vine, which intensely concentrates the flavors and leads to a lavish richness that is almost port-like. It has been a very dear project of Director of Winemaking, Dave Nagengast.  Continue »

Here at Scheid, we adore Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but we’ve also been known to work with a plethora of slightly more obscure grape varieties, and we feel proud to be able to show off the wonderful diversity of the Monterey growing region. The many varied soil types and micro-climates of Monterey County allow us to produce close to 40 different varietals in all, including our newest darling, Dolcetto.  Continue »
