New Releases at the Caduceus Tasting Room, Jerome and on Caduceus.org.
8 new wines. This is the most expansive set of new releases in recent memory. Each of these releases offer a unique expression of time and place. For example, 2015 is the first vintage that fruit for NAGA and Primer Paso came from our largest Northern AZ vineyard, Eliphante. We suggest exploring several vintages together with friends and watch the story unfold.
Cheers!

THE TEMPLATES

Caduceus Cellars currently has five different blocks in Northern Arizona. 4900ft, the Judiths Block on Cleopatra Hill, Jerome, AZ, is a combination of limestone, volcanic, and sedimentary rock. 3500 ft, The Marzo Block and at 3300 ft, The Agostina block are covered with fine river sediment over a bed of calcareous substrate. The Elephante block, in Cornville, AZ, has a minimum of 5 different soils/terrain profiles all on a 28 acre site. The Southwest Wine Center, Yavapai College Block is nestled in the alluvial foothills of Mingus Mountain. All this peppered with volcanic magic dust. The main fruit source for Merkin Vineyards is the historic 70 acre Buhl Memorial Vineyard, in the Kansas Settlement of Willcox, Arizona.
