“initial public offering”
This is a nod to my career spent as a financial advisor, and also the one acre sliver of Cabernet Sauvignon on the property when we purchased it. This was the only block of vines. The rest were walnut trees.
i.p.o. is typically 75-80% Cabernet with small amounts of Syrah and Zinfandel. In 2009, when we were building our winery, we tore out this block, increased it to three acres. The first all estate version of this blend will be 2014, which will be released most likely in 2017.
