A stunning expression of California in a complex Bordeaux blend, this wine is composed of 40% Malbec, 34% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot from all hillside vineyards which helps to keep berry size down and concentration strong. The sites are south and southeast facing for the early ripening varietals with clay loam soils. Aged 18 months in 45% New Oak, 60 gallon French Oak Barrels. The tannins are well integrated and the texture elegant and silky, making this a wine that is drinking beautifully now and will continue to reward with cellaring.

The folks behind Aperture believe that wine is an artistic expression as personal and universal as photography. So it only makes sense that father & son, Andy and Jesse Katz would finally find a way to work together to produce stunning wines from California. Andy Katz made his name as one of the greatest photographers of his generation, and his work graces coffee-table books, galleries, and album covers around the globe. While he was traveling the world for his art, he made a point of bringing along his son, Jesse, to experience it all with him. Over the years, they both benefited from an international wine education that even master sommeliers would envy— sipping wine with Olivier Leflaive and his family, working through the famous wine cellar of Cheval Blanc in Bordeaux and in a late-night tasting at Sassicaia were a few of the amazing wine experiences father and son had together.

It has all come full circle now with Aperture: Jesse makes critically acclaimed wine——and Andy supplies the photos. Andy’s vision, Jesse’s taste, smell, and touch… this is a 'dance of the senses' created by two gifted artists.

Deep ruby-purple in color, the nose bursts with lilac perfume, Morello cherries, cured meats, star anise, tar and a mineral undercurrent. The palate is pixelated and lifted with glorious perfume lingering on the very long finish. 95-97
