Founded by Mike Duffy in 1984, Optima Winery is located in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County, California. After graduating UC Davis with a degree in enology, Mike worked as the winemaker at Field Stone alongside Andre Tchelistcheff, a world renowned winemaker. Mike employs traditional techniques including open-top fermentations and extended macerations. Estate grown fruit is supplemented with grapes purchased from respected growers in Dry Creek Valley. The Optima portfolio includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Zinfandel Port and Petite Sirah.

Tasting notes
Rich and ripe with layers of wild berry, red currant, wild cherries and dusty spice notes. Flavors of chocolate, dark berries and mocha lead to rich tannins and a spicy finish.

Technical notes
Fruit from the western bench of Dry Creek Valley was destemmed, fermented to dryness and matured in small 60 gallon French and American oak barrels for 12 months.
