Adjacent to Red Mountain, Candy Mountain is south-facing with a gentle, 5% slope. The soil is almost all blow sand, typical for this area. The dry growing conditions and high heat units produce wines similar in style to Red Mountain, rich in extraction with ripe fruit flavors and robust tannins. Candy Mountain Vineyard, planted in 1998, is owned by Premier Partners and managed by Tom Waliser.
