||Bruce Golden and Michelle Mercer spent years traveling to the world’s most renowned wine regions. As their passion for wine grew, so did the idea of finding their perfect place to build a family estate and produce truly great California Cabernet Sauvignon.They found this very special place in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley. The couple formed M-G Vineyards and built their lives on the secluded property, where granite and quartz underlie the soil, native oak trees dot the landscape, and great owls glide around giant granite boulders.
They revitalized a nine-acre vineyard on a pristine hillside with ideal sun exposure, employed sustainable farming methods and organic products, and worked with top viticulturists and winemakers to craft their wine by hand. Here, in this unique microclimate, nights are cool, providing for a longer hanging time than is typical for Dry Creek and allowing for deeper flavors and aromas in the wine.
Inky and rich, filled with ripe, layered complexity, the wine is lifted by vibrancy and great acidity on the palate. Golden and Mercer have succeeded in producing a Cabernet Sauvignon as magnificent as their property.
