The 2017 is a deeply colored Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose the wine showcases rich blackberry fruit, espresso, and tobacco. The complex palate bursts with dark cherry and blackberry flavors surrounds by earth and cigar box. The tannins are firm, yet elegant and balanced. This wine is designed to drink upon release, but can age gracefully for a decade or longer.

It opens with an exotic mix of black cherry, black currant and hints of herbs and warm spices. Blackberries and cherries tease the palate before exploding into a wine that is broad and mouth filling with soft tannins, elegant and focused from beginning to the long lingering finish. This wine has the balance to age gracefully for a decade.

Decanting this wine prior to drinking is recommended.

Notes

2017 was an incredible season overall. We were thrilled with the growing season producing very high-quality grapes. Harvest went well with higher than expected yields. Our grapes were harvested and in fermentation vessels prior to the start of the Northern California fires.
The Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented in 1.5ton Macro bins and manual punch downs were done numerous times daily through fermentation. The wine was aged in French oak for 20 months and bottled September 2019. We held it for eight months prior to release.
