This 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is the culmination of its creators' journey - "From the Land of the Sun to the Valley of The Moon." Viticulturist Diego Smart was farming his own vineyard in Mendoza, Argentina - The Land of the Sun - when he met winemaker Lynda Hanson. Eventually he followed her to Sonoma’s Valley of the Moon and the couple started a family. Diego began working in some of Sonoma’s best vineyards as a vineyard manager and Lynda as a winemaker first at Wellington Vineyards in Glen Ellen, then at Hanzell vineyards in Sonoma. In 2010 they had the opportunity to combine their passion and expertise to create their own wine. The grapes for this wine come from a small organically farmed vineyard in Glen Ellen. Diego oversaw all the farming and hand harvesting while Lynda oversaw the details of winemaking and aging. Only 2 barrels were produced in this first vintage. This first release from Smart Cellars has a compellingly complex nose of mulberry, barrel toast and vanilla with a signature hint of dried herbs. In the mouth the wine explodes with berry fruit held in a supple, mouthfilling structure. Its deceptively smooth tannins make it delicious now but it promises to age for many years.
