i.p.o. is a Caber­net Sauvi­gnon dom­i­nant blend with small amounts of Syrah and Zinfandel.

Dark ruby. Smoke-accent­ed aro­mas of cher­ry, cas­sis, pipe tobac­co and vio­let, with a pep­pery nuance adding vibran­cy. Juicy and focused on entry, then broad­er and fleshi­er in the mid­dle, offer­ing sweet black and blue fruit fla­vors with sug­ges­tions of licorice and fruit­cake. Spreads out nice­ly on the fin­ish, which fea­tures round tan­nins and repeat­ing smoke and flo­ral notes.

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.

2012 was the last vin­tage of i.p.o.. Although I love this wine, I want­ed to make way for iso. Enjoy this library wine while it lasts!
