ABOUT THE WINE

One of the early wineries to be bonded by the state of California, the Kunde Estate was established in 1904 by Louis Kunde, who planted imported cuttings from renowned producers Chateaux Margaux and Lafite Rothschild. For more than a century the Kunde Family has farmed what is now a 1,850 acre estate in the heart of Sonoma Valley, and it is now in its fifth generation.

The Kunde Family’s winemaking mission is to craft elegant, estate grown, sustainably farmed wines with an authentic sense of place. This decadent red blend, exclusively crafted for the Barrel Auction, was harvested from the windswept mountain top ridges of the Kunde Estate. The finished wine presents succulent black and red fruit aromas with flavors of intense red plum and a hint of savory on its full-mouth finish.
