What is Vigilance?

Here’s what the winery says about their name.

Vigilance:  Middle English (Scots), from Latin vigilant-, vigilans, from present participle of vigilare to keep watch, stay awake, from vigil awake alert, watchful, keenly aware; careful, observant

As Vintners, it is our honor and responsibility to care for the land that sustains us; to preserve the environment for our children and generations to come. Every bottle of wine that we make is truly a harmonious expression of the earth and our commitment to it.

What about the wine?

We tasted the Cimarron a couple nights ago and were quite impressed.

Vigilance Cimarron 2010
(Lake County, California)

The grapes used to produce our 2010 Vigilance Cimarron were picked from several growing areas of Lake County. Helping to create a multi-layered wine with a nice balance, great fruit and a long lush finish, the fruit was picked at the peak of ripeness, fermented in French and American oak for 14 months.

Sarah’s notes on tasting this wine:

Nice vibrant red raspberry and dark cherry notes up front with a subtle cinnamon spice aroma. Well balanced with a great finish. It’s bold without being too heavy so it’ll pair well with food but is a great wine on it’s own as well. It came across pretty sophisticated for the price too!
