2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine is a blend of the best Cabernet Sauvignons in our North Coast vineyards coming from our growers of Mendocino Valley, Alexander Valley and Suisun Valley. The 2017 has a nose of plum and a touch of dark mocha. On the palate, layers of tannins and slight oak. This wine is fruity and elegant with a vibrant long mouth-feel. The finish is long with good structure. This wine will pair with everything from pasta, vegan dishes or classic meats.
82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 6% Syrah, 4% Petit Verdot
8 months in American and Hungarian oak; 10% new
Natural from Portugal
The exceptional 2017 vintage started with buds pushing a little early after a very dry winter. The beautiful growing season resulted in truly exceptional wines full of ripe flavors, developed in the sunshine, and balanced by natural acidity. The weather stayed warm throughout the summer but was free of damaging heat spells. With the consistent warmth, the harvest began about two weeks early and we had a very busy September. The last picks for our Cabernet Sauvignon came in early October and brought a classic West Coast autumn with warm days and very cool nights.
