For more than thirty years, Benzinger farmed from a ranch on Sonoma Mountain and searched Sonoma County for the most distinctive and expressive vineyards. Once found, they tend these sites using certified Biodynamic, organic and sustainable farming methods. The result is a portfolio of authentic and memorable wines.
In the mid 90’s, the Benzinger family began transitioning their home ranch to a Biodynamic farm. They learned which flowers attracted the bugs needed to keep pest populations in control. Habitats were created for birds and owls, and brought cows, sheep and chickens to live on the property. Once the estate found its balance, the wines did too. From their home ranch came Tribute, the first Biodynamic wines from Sonoma or Napa Counties. Today, they are proud to be living and working on a healthy, vibrant ranch that is home to numerous species of plants, animals and insects and we love sharing this special place with visitors from all over the world.
Blended from premier benchland vineyards, this Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is polished and approachable. Elegant, juicy flavors of berry cobbler followed by mocha and wood spice unite, layer by layer to form a rich full-bodied wine with chalky, round tannins and a long finish.
