This is the first wine Sbragia Family Vineyards produced! 

Rancho Del Oso is one of my favorite vineyards. Owned by Betty O’Shaughnessy this vineyard is located at the very top of Howell Mountain, and is named after the red bear that climbs the deer fence and swims in the reservoir. I love the big fruit flavors and unmistakable intensity of Howell Mountain fruit. This is the first vintage for this wine, and the grapes came from the northern part of the vineyard, and the terroir expression comes through in the wine’s strong but elegant structure.
