Massiglia is the ancient name for the town of Marseille in France, where I grew up. This wine captures the strength and character of our estate vineyard, with the rich flavors and supple structure that make it appealing immediately upon release.

Wine AdvocateThe proprietary red wine, the Massiglia, tends to be a blend of about two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon, 29-30% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot. These wines see slightly less new oak than the Cabernets (about 61-71%, depending on the vintage). The star is the 2013 Proprietary Red Blend Massiglia, which has a dense purple color and a wonderful nose of creosote, black truffle, blueberry and blackberry fruit. It is full-bodied and opulent, but also has good, sweet tannin, grip and a delineated, vibrant mouthfeel.

Wine SpectatorA charming, graceful style, supple and harmonious, centered on silky blackberry and wild berry flavors, with accents of light toasty oak. The finish glides along smoothly, making the understated elegance a focal point. Drink now through 2028. 300 cases made.
