This wine has a big nose of blackberries, black currants, tobacco, and very dark fruits; aromatically huge. Great grip on the palate, and very approachable now. The tannins and fruit quite are sweet, with inky black tea and currant flavors. Very structured for such a young wine.
Vayniac Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 is the first-ever truly community-made wine. Sourced from premium Napa fruit, its realization in the bottle stands as testament to the passion and hard work of wine lovers worldwide who contributed to this project over a period of 2 years.
Everything about the wine, right down to this label, was community driven. Some chimed in with input from afar, others got dirty working the crush, and a select few were able to participate in the final blending.
We're proud of this wine and all that it embodies: Family, togetherness, even a little rebelliousness. In addition, it's flat out delicious!
