Ironstone Vineyards, the producer of Leaping Horse, is known for owning and operating several leading US wine brands. In addition to vineyards in the Sierra Foothills, Ironstone draws on the production from its Lodi appellation vineyards—some 4,500 acres (18 km2) in all.
Born from a love of horses, Leaping Horse is aptly named. The Kautz family have been involved in many generations of riders and are passionate about their equine friends and partners. From an artist rendition to today’s look, Leaping Horse is about unpretentious and contemporary wine styles.
On the nose, flavors of black currant, cherry with hints of blueberry, eucalyptus, and mint. On the palate, those aromas come through with an added touch of oak. Pair with steak, pulled pork, or warm vegetable dishes.
Made from 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 3% Tannat, the grapes come from soils that are sandy loam and well-drained. The wine ages for 4 months in new French oak prior to bottling and release.
