From the Medlock Ames web site:  “Medlock Ames is an estate fine wine producer located in Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California. Started in 1998 by friends Chris James and Ames Morison, we consider our commitment to quality through mindful and organic farming to be one of our greatest assets.  Our vineyards are farmed organically with no insecticides, chemical fertilizers or herbicides and solar power provides the energy we need to run.  Only 55 of our 338 acres are farmed; we chose to leave the majority of land in a natural state, reserving the majority of our acreage for oaks and wildflowers, not vines.  Innovative and traditional methods are used to farm this boutique vineyard where vegetables, olives and wildlife also flourish.  The portfolio includes chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, reserve chardonnay, merlot, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon, a Bordeaux blend, estate bottled olive oil, verjus (a highly acidic grape juice) and preserves.

Winery Tasting Notes:  “Concentrated aromas of dark chocolate, vanilla and black currant provide a welcome entry to this powerful cabernet sauvignon that shows notes of licorice, plum and a hint of slate and minerality on the palate.  Lush, firm tannins round out the finish.”
