Fill Levels
A family cellar who's patriarch bought most of the wine on release directly from wineries and held in his home cellar. In October of 1989 the wines were transferred to a professional wine storage facility in NYC (we have the intake receipts) where they have sat until being brought to auction.
Vineyard notes- CASK 23 is a tale of two vineyards that come together in a harmonious blend. For the 2010 offering, slightly more than half of the grapes were grown in our FAY vineyard while the balance was from select areas in S.L.V.

Vines planted in volcanic soils on the eastern hillsides of S.L.V. and FAY give CASK 23 its structure, concentration, spicy intensity and elegant tannins
