2017 Row 7

2017 Row 7

Great things sometimes happen by chance.

In 1999 during the planting of our first vineyard on Old Mission Peninsula, Jamieson, an unknown mix of varietals inadvertently ended up in Row 7. It was a hot and frantic weekend of planting, and the Lagina’s called in friends and family for help. Plants were grabbed haphazardly and mistakes were made in an effort to save the vines from baking in the sun or over soaking in buckets of water.

Rather than correct our mistake, we decided to declare victory and call it a success, welcoming our first vintage of this flagship wine in 2006. Row 7’s eponymous wine is a field blend of those same varieties, a mysterious wine that delivers big, bold vintages year after year.

Vinification: The Row 7 hoop house was harvested on October 7th from our southernmost vineyard, Jamieson. After arrival at the winery, the grapes were fermented whole berry in a stainless steel pump-over tank all together. Pump-overs occurred several times daily and tapered down to once a day at the end of fermentation. Waiting until November 2nd to press, Winemaker Sean O’Keefe allowed tannins to polymerize—to become longer, building a subtler, less sharp, tannic presence. After pressing, the wine was transferred to first use French oak demi-muids, undergoing malolactic fermentation. After a year on the lees, the wine was racked on November 29th, 2018. It was then aged for another 14 months in oak until one light filtration and bottling on February 26th, 2020.

Aging
This is a very ripe, young wine; while it is enjoyable now, we recommend aging it for the best example of maturity and complexity. If drinking now, decanting before serving or opening ahead of time will help the flavors to open.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Earthy, fig and dark berry notes meld into a soft finish with subtle tannins. Distinct oak on the nose and palate signifies time spent in new barrels. Reminiscent of a fuller bodied Bordeaux blend, look for deeper flavors to emerge as this wine matures in the bottle.
Food Pairing Notes
This fuller bodied red will stand up to heavier or fattier meat based dishes. Try with beef bourguignon, stroganoff, or a lamb ragu.
