Harvest is always stretched out at Las Posadas. The first fruit comes off early for Howell Mountain—a scavenged mix across the entire property yielding a very important component for the final blend. The core of the 2016 Las Posadas wine was the two fermentations on 10/6 and 10/12—both dense and exotic expressions of the vineyard, and each nearly equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc with the addition of Petit Verdot. The final selection was from the oldest vines that tipped the final blend to a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon. In total, 14 barrels combined to create a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc, 15% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec and 5% Merlot.
