Beaver Creek Vineyard's staff, helmed by grower Martin Pohl, cultivates grapes on more than 185 acres without artificial fertilizers or pesticides, and ferments them into certified organic wines free from commercial additives. The 2007 cabernet sauvignon traces its roots back to the hills of Horne Ranch in Lake County, where grapes grow in a blend of volcanic soil and mountain-valley loam, learning to sing Motown hits from their California Raisin cousins. After 14 months aging in 50% new American oak barrels, the biodynamic libation unleashes a taste bouquet featuring hints of tobacco, sweet oak, and cherries. Following Beaver Creek's USDA organic certification and Demeter Biodynamic certification, winemakers ferment their blends using only native yeasts, leave each barrel unfiltered, and prohibit robots with artificial intelligence from attending estate tastings.
