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
Concentrated blackberry and raspberry aromas with flavors of dried dates and lush blueberry are featured on the rich, dense and candied finish.

Technical notes
Late harvest grapes from the eastern bench of Dry Creek Valley were fermented for nine days prior to fortification with aged brandy. The wine was pressed, racked to two 60 gallon French oak barrels and matured for 12 months.
