Capture Wines represents the marriage of time-honored Bordeaux winemaking with the intense fruit character of our organically farmed mountain estate, Tin Cross Vineyards, nearly 2,500 feet above the Alexander Valley floor in Sonoma County. Renowned winemaking team May-Britt and Denis Malbec, formerly of Chateau Latour in Bordeaux, create wines to bring out the rich personality of the terroir. The resulting wines are elegant expressions of depth, nuance, and longevity.
Sam Teakle joined the Capture winemaking team in 2015. Sam is tasked with finding and harnessing some of the best vineyards while creating wines that showcase the nuances of mountain Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon from the rugged Mayacamas Mountain Range. Even before joining Capture he has been drawn to mountain vineyards and exploring the frontier of winemaking in these remote regions
This wine is aged in puncheon, barrel, and amphora with bâtonnage for 10 months. It opens with notes of candle smoke, wet stone, red pear, kiwi, tarragon, gooseberry, and grass with pineapple and white flower touches. It’s medium-bodied and rounded in the mouth with great flavor intensity and layering, gaining in intensity as it travels through the mouth. It’s enlivened by mouthwatering acidity and finishes long and textured. A lovely expression of Sauvignon Blanc!
