Preface, as its name implies, serves as an introduction to the Skipstone estate and our flagship red wines: Skipstone Oliver’s Blend and Skipstone Faultline Vineyard. Preface shares much of the same DNA as our flagship wines – a testament to our terroir and winemaking expertise – and is crafted by blending our younger estate vines with select barrels to be approachable upon release.
This Cabernet Sauvignon dominant Bordeaux blend incorporates all four red varieties on our estate: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc. 2018 was a cooler vintage than average throughout the entire growing season, which allowed for long hangtimes – a combination that yielded wines of full flavor ripeness, moderate alcohols and mouthfeel, and beautifully vibrant aromatics. A touch lighter than the rest of the Skipstone wines, Preface has a medium body, yet displays the classic Skipstone vineyard characteristics: purity of fruit, density, and freshness.
