    Livermore Valley Vintner’s Collective is a group of highly motivated and creative winemakers residing in the Livermore Valley.  Driven by collaboration and inspiration, the group decided to begin a winemaking project.
Central question:
What would happen if you give a group of winemakers a framework of varietals and ask them to make a wine?  One that is totally unique, accessible and interesting.  A representation of the specified grapes from the appellation, but with the finger prints of each personality.  Would you end up with similar wines?  Would they be drastically different?
The answer lies within…

Tasting Notes:
    With dark fruit and a hint of smoke, this wine opens on a generally balanced and fruit driven nose.  The small percentage of Petite adds a little pepper while the multiple varietals create breadth which is quite appealing.  A hint of roses and plums are backed by a little cassis and even some mild oak notes.

    The entry on the palate is generous in nature, with Syrah and Merlot leading the fruit bouquet charge…The Petite adds a seriousness to the mid palate while the Cabernet brings a length of finish and tannin structure.  The Cabernet Franc brings a suitable fruit profile, making this vintage a bit warmer than the 2018.
