This cabernet sauvignon is just as intense in color as it is in flavors. The complex structure of bold fruit, firm tannins and just-a-hint of eucalyptus round out this exciting and young wine. It will need some patience if you are enjoying now.
From the Winemakers' Website: This wine is approachable in its youth, with balanced tannins & a fruit-forward character. The vast majority of fruit comes from our estate, supplemented by a limited amount from Napa Valley growers. 2017 Tasting Notes: Vibrant aromatics of ripe cherry, black plum, cedar, & fine leather all leap from the glass. The supple & seductive entry is ripe with blackberry jam & soft mocha tones, leading this balanced wine through the mid-palate with notes of vanilla, violet florals, & a touch of white pepper. The finish is smooth with approachable velvety tannins that softly linger & make this wine the consummate crowd pleaser. Vintage & Viticulture: The season began with a memorable amount of rainfall, which was a refreshing change after five years of drought conditions, but also included more triple-digit heat waves in the summer months. The weather during the mid-harvest season cooled a bit & included some late foggy mornings. These cooler mornings allowed for a longer growing season for later-ripening varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon & Petit Verdot, giving them longer on the vine. This additional hang time markedly slowed sugar accumulation & ripening, ultimately producing deep, alluring, finesse-driven wines".
