THE VINEYARDS

The inaugural release of single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon heralds from the high elevation Mayacamas Mountains north of St. Helena in the Red Hills AVA. Lying between 2000 and 2600 feet in elevation, these mountain vineyards are the result of the same volcanic and tectonic processes that formed the terroir of many of the North Coast’s classic regions. As one would expect of mountain viticulture, elevation moderates temperature extremes, allowing for a long growing season that results in complex flavor development. The intensity of flavors is magnified by vine stress from well-drained, iron-rich vineyards littered with black obsidian, quartz crystal, and volcanic gravel. As California winemakers look beyond the more established growing regions, the confluence of site, soil, elevation, and climate will undoubtedly make the Red Hills AVA one of the great appellations of California wine country.


THE WINEMAKER

Kyle Mizuno never planned to be a winemaker. He went to the University of California at Davis to study biochemistry with the intent of becoming a pharmacist. In his senior year, Mizuno decided to take a Viticulture and Enology class.

As one of many biochemistry graduates from UC Davis, there was tough competition for the few available positions. At the annual job fair, there were only three bioscience companies so, he decided to explore lab position opportunities with the wineries in attendance. He was offered a position at Franciscan Estates and began his career in the wine industry. Over the years, Mizuno has worked at Quintessa, Kenzo Estate and directly for Aaron Pott. Pott has been Mizuno’s mentor throughout his career.

Bespoke Collection is excited to have him as the winemaker for Resolute Wines.


CONSULTING WINEMAKER

Studying oenology at the University of California, Davis, Aaron Pott delved into all aspects of the theory of winemaking, including practical application by working part-time in the research laboratory at Robert Mondavi Winery. He completed his education with a master’s degree in Viticulture from the Université de Bourgogne in Dijon, France. Pott immediately took the position of assistant winemaker at Newton Vineyard, under Winemaker John Kongsgaard. It was at Newton—under the wing of his first great mentor—that Pott would be introduced to Michel Rolland. Pott worked for nearly six years making wine in France before returning to the States to take a position with Beringer Wine Estates. In November 2012, Pott was named “Winemaker of the Year” by the highly-acclaimed, Food & Wine magazine.


THE ARTIST

Tony Hernandez began painting and drawing when he was seven years old. Although encouraged to pursue his talent by art teachers, Hernandez decided to study architecture, a more acceptable career path according to his family. While studying architecture, he realized that he was more interested in building structures than designing them. After working in construction for three years, he decided to turn his dream of being an artist into a reality. For Hernandez, “Having the time to paint and to think and conceptualize about what I wanted to paint had become vital.” He has been a professional painter for nearly thirty years.
