About This Wine

Filmmakers and winemakers possess similar talents.

In the case of filmmakers, they must select, edit and piece together separate sections of film in order to form a continuous whole that tells a story. In the case of winemakers, they must select, ferment and blend various “lots” of grapes in order to form a cuvee that is pleasing to the nose and the palate.

In crafting its red blend for the 2015 vintage, Braxton Hall selected a name that’s used by filmmakers to describe their creative process: “Montage.” The wine is a blend of several red varieties that Braxton Hall sources from respected and trusted growers in various parts of California.

The winery does not share the varietal mix, preferring to let the cuvee speak for itself — and it speaks volumes not only for the quality of the fruit, but the talent of the vintner. It’s a delightful “Montage” of aromas and flavors.

    it is very smooth and easy on the palate and may very well mellow with time in the cellar
