Sleeping Indian Vineyard
Sleeping Indian Vineyard is the first commercial wine grape grower in the South Morro Hills area that is still producing quality wine grapes. Since 2007, we have been producing high quality Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sangiovese grapes.
In addition, we have been producing a Tuscan-style blend of Sangiovese since our first vintage bottling in 2009.
Our current wines include:
2014 Cabernet Sauvignon- Dark, Ruby Red, full bodied. Good acid balance, fresh ripe fruit, chewy tannins. This spent 14 months on Medium-Toast French oak. We expect this to be released first quarter 2016.
2015 Rose' of Sangiovese- 100% estate grown sangiovese. This was left on skins for 30 hours and pressed. Floral, fruity, dry, and refreshing.
2013 Merlot- 100% Estate grown Merlot. Almost 2 years on French oak. Moderately dark and delicious. Red fruit, balance, finesse.
2013 Sangiovese- This is an Italian classic estate grown in Fallbrook California. Rich fruit, spicy, great accompaniment for a hearty Southern Italian meal.
2013 Red Blend- Our Miscella Rossa is a classic blend of 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a more elegant and complex wine than our Sangiovese. Classic, rounded flavors that you will think about long after the bottle is empty.
