Leojami Releases Four New Single-Vineyard Wines

We are very happy to announce the release of four new single-vineyard wines from Monterey County. Focusing on varieties and blends that are thought provoking and delicious, we have also created unique recipes for each new release – available exclusively at http://www.LeojamiWines.com.

2009 Viognier
Our Viognier is hand-harvested from Cedar Lane Vineyard in Arroyo Seco, California. The grapes are whole cluster pressed, and the juice is fermented in neutral oak and stainless steel barrels. Over the next several months, the wine was aged sur lie with weekly stirring. The resulting wine features vibrant and elevated aromatics with a rich lingering palate. (75 Cases)

2009 Obsession, Rosé of Grenache
The grapes for this wine were grown in the San Antonio Valley at Pierce Ranch. Shortly after fermentation began, we drew off some of the lightly pigmented grape must and fermented it separately. The resulting wine is clean, fruity and full-bodied, with notes of strawberry, raspberry and spice. (25 Cases)

2008 Ræd
This red blend of Sangiovese and Syrah is sourced from Mesa Del Sol Vineyard in Arroyo Seco, California. The grapes were fermented together and aged for 16 months in French and American oak barrels. The profile of the wine is bright and ripe – cherry, spice, vanilla, cedar – with a complex and smooth lingering finish. (175 Cases)

2009 Grenache
The grapes for this wine were grown at Pierce Ranch Vineyard in San Antonio Valley, California. The clusters were hand-harvested and gently de-stemmed. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for ten months. The finished wine is aromatic and fruity, spicy, rich and complex. (125 Cases)
