The Casey Flat Ranch is an exciting new project
in the Capay Valley of California. Hardly
known even to wine aficionados, the Capay
Valley lies in Yolo County, just east of Napa Valley.
The vineyards of Casey Flat Ranch, which
were planted in 2004, occupy moderately
rocky soils on a 2,000-foot slope. While moving
eastward in California generally means
pushing into hotter climes, the altitude provides
for cool temperatures that are reportedly
equivalent to top Napa subregions like
Oakville and Rutherford and even cooler than
St. Helena, which is just over 20 miles west
of the site. Grapes from these vineyards are
blended with lots from Napa’s Howell Mountain,
Oak Knoll and Atlas Peak districts. The
result is a harmonious and engaging wine that
offers a picture of the great potential of this
area of northern California.
Mint and cedar spice aromas hover over a base of black cherry, dark plum and
Sumptuous berry-fruit flavors are garnished with mocha, tobacco and smoke.
The Casey Flat Ranch blend is fruity and approachable enough to be enjoyed
on its own but will really shine when paired with food. The wine’s dark fruit
makes it the perfect match for meat seared on the grill, as the rich berry
sweetness embraces any crispy char. Cabernet’s savory side, expressed
here with hints of licorice and olive, makes it a good choice for lamb chops,
veal and earthy cuts of beef like hanger or flank steaks. Marinades or rubs
featuring garlic, soy and herbs will highlight the wine’s fruit. Look to williams-

Serve a little cooler than room temperature: refrigerate the bottle for 10
minutes before serving.
