Kautz & Kramer represents a culmination of a lifetime of passion and dedication. John Kautz, the son of hardworking German immigrants grew up on his family farm in Lodi, California. His parents moved to the U.S. in search of the “American Dream” and purchased a small parcel of land. Gail Kramer, the daughter of a lawyer and English professor, was born in California. John & Gail were married in 1958. Together, they grew their family farming operation and helped pioneer premium wine grapes in Lodi. 

Bright aromas of black cherries and fresh currants that are followed by flavors of vanilla bean, nutmeg, fig and a hint of black licorice. The middle is supple and rich with a blackberry-raspberry finish that is full and lingering.

About the Vineyard: The Sheldon Ranch was purchased by the Kautz family in the 1980s. Prior to the family buying this ranch, it was well-known for growing hops. The Sheldon Ranch is in the Sloughhouse sub-AVA of Lodi. This area is slightly higher in elevation and features the Cosumnes River and Deer Creek that run through it. The soils consist of bedrock from the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The climate is warm, allowing Cabernet Franc to fully ripen. This vintage was selected from Block 72.
