Product Description

Our Cabernet Sauvignon is hand-picked from John’s home ranch. These vines come from clone 337, which produces very small berries. The small berries produce a wine rich in color and tannin. Inky black hue color of this sumptuous Cabernet gives way to expressive aromas of black cherry, cassis, and allspice. Aging in French oak barrels softens the otherwise firm tannins and introduces hints of vanilla and cedar on the palate. Luscious currants and pepper flavors are refined and balanced by a lingering finish. For all those who complain that Cab isn’t food-friendly, this one is. Ageability is almost guaranteed. Best now through 2020, with proper cellaring.

Winemaker Notes
The aromas are rich with black cherry, earth, cedar and plum. The cherry ?avor continues to show in the palate which also expresses black currant, leather and an elegant white pepper. Barrel ?avors of dark chocolate and dusty tannins round out the ?nish.
