This Cabernet Sauvignon leads with a deep ruby hue and engaging aromas of dark berries, spice, violets and cassis. Tasting delivers a multi-layered wine featuring supple flavors of blackcurrants framed by subtler tones of mocha, caramel and toast. Medium-firm tannins imbue structure, balance and depth to the wine, which closes on a polished note, with a lingering finish.
In another strong, early California vintage, Cabernet grapes were harvested at peak ripeness over a period of several weeks, concluding in October of 2016. At the winery, grapes were destemmed prior to fermentation in 100% stainless steel to preserve the vitality of the fruit. The wine was aged partially in tank and partially in barrel, a balance envisioned to complement the wine’s lively, fruit-driven profile with the premium toast notes and supple mouthfeel imparted by French and American oak.
