SONOMA VA LLEY ESTATE GROWN
The superior terroir of Sonoma Valley has been recognized since the late 1800's. Our Justi
Creek Vineyards lie at the heart of this fabled region. Inspired by the French settler who first
established a winery on our land, we crafted this Cabernet based blend. Fascinated by stories of
trailblazing vintners, we named this blend 'Reminiscence', paying homage to these pioneer
winemakers, their heirloom farming traditions and classic winemaking techniques. Our
organically farmed vineyards are planted with the high quality Cabernet Sauvignon Clones 337
and 15. This year's Reminiscence is accompanied by our Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Franc
Clone 214 for added finesse, and a splash of acidity from Merlot Clone 181 making a structured,
well balanced, exciting blend. Aged 18 months in French Oak, the wine leads with notes of
cassis and spice. On the palate, ripe fruit and toasty oak meld, giving dimension and
complexity. An unforgettable wine, recalled with nostalgia.

JUST I CREEK VINEYARDS
Our estate in Sonoma Valley is rich in historical significance, encompassing organically farmed
vineyards and an eco-friendly winery. Justi Creek Vineyards, part of the stunning 95-acre
ranch on the outskirts of Glen Ellen, is comprised of three eandtj apcarcels ofrmerly parts of
Rancho Vallejo and Rancho Los Guilicos. Nancy and John Lasseter embarked on an
environmentally sensitive upgrading of their property, lovingly restnogri natural habitat and
converting the vineyards exclusively to organic farming prac teicse sT.he pond was revitalized, and
beehives and insectaries were established to provide homes for beneficial insects. The
ecosystem flourishes under the watchful eye of vineyard manager Phil Coturri. The Upper
Bench Blocks are seventeen acres of undulating terrain situated above the valley floor, known
locally as the "Glen Ellen Moguls." The fast-draining, cobbly soils of these blocks are ideal for
Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. With this vintage of Reminiscence,
Cabernet Sauvignon based blend, we give a nod to the history of our home in Sonoma
Valley and a taste of the world-class caliber of our Justi Creek Vineyards.
