Artfully crafted dark ruby Cabernet with bright plum, black currant, and mint, mixed with earth and toasty oak. Juicy plum flavors with smooth tannin finish. Pair with blue cheeseburgers, braised beef shanks, pork tenderloin, and garlic chicken wings.
Deep ruby red in color. Enticing fruit aromas of plum, black cherry, and cassis mix with an herbal potpourri of sage, spicy oak, vanilla, and subtle cedar cigar box. The vivid palate includes bright cherry, sweet berry, and oak flavors wrapped in silky tannin.
Grapes are harvested ripe at full maturation of flavor and color. The destemmed must is then cold soaked for 3 to 4 days. Fermented in small lots and punched down for gentle extraction. After fermenting, each tank receives extended maceration and is gently pressed to avid harsh tannin. Aged in only the finest tight grain French oak barrels.
Bordering Sonoma Creek, this sustainably farmed vineyard block features deep gravely volcanic soil, granting concentrated berries and complex character. 4.5 acres planted in 1998 and 1999 to Cabernet French clones 337 and V15.
