2018 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 2018 was blended with a splash of Merlot and Malbec. The nose as a touch of plum and a touch of dark mocha. On the palate, layers of soft tannins with light oak presence. 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.

The 2018 vintage started with a cool winter, and just enough rain to replenish the vineyards. Harvest began from 10 days to three weeks later than in 2017, fortunately, compared to previous years, we did not see any major heat waves in the early part of harvest, so the fruit ripened evenly and stress-free with exceptional quality, thanks to consistent growing conditions and cooler temperatures, which allowed the grapes to mature slowly. The last picks for our Cabernet Sauvignon came in mid October.
