Six Sigma Diamond Mine Cuvee Red 2014
Hey there! We know it’s Saturday, but you NEED to see this --- we practically dropped our Mad Fritz beer (yeah, we drink beer, too) Friday afternoon when the call came in on this. WOW! OVER 60% OFF! Super limited...
*** locked some in? Dope. You’ll love it. ***
Six Sigma is north of Napa Valley in Lake County (no less than Andy Beckstoffer of To-Kalon, Dr. Crane and others just purchased another 220 acres there) and the Diamond Mine Red is named for the “Lake County Diamonds”, small volcanic-made pieces of quartz that litter the ground and glimmer in the sunlight. The vineyard sits at 1,700 ft. elevation and is surrounded by an untouched landscape. This lush, deep, toasty red might remind you of a “Prisoner”-type red, as it is a blend of Cabernet, Tempranillo and Syrah, so at our head-spinning price, we hope you loaded up!
Deep dark chocolate, almost fudge flavors, roll around in the hay with sweet, ripe plums and dried cherries, baking spices and potpourri, dusty earth, dark and rich and mouthcoating. The fresh-baked pie flavor just hangs on for what seems like minutes...anyway, if you read this far we might be sold out! While it lasts…!

About The Producer
The grapes were sourced from the
Diamond Mine Vineyard site on our ranch. This site is named for the “Lake County Diamonds,”
small volcanic-made pieces of quartz that litter the ground and glimmer in the sunlight. The
vineyard sits at 1,700 ft. elevation and is surrounded by an untouched landscape. It is naturally farmed
meaning we use no pesticides and no herbicides. We also use a no-till approach
to managing the vineyard floor with the goal of minimal input. Sheep graze in
the vineyards helping us compost the
permanent cover crop. The shallow, rocky, volcanic soils impart structure and minerality to this
