2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
In 2015, we made the commitment to add another wine grape variety to our Estate Vineyards in our pristine Sierra Foothills ranch. The choice was easy - the" King of all Grapes", Cabernet Sauvignon.
Cabernet Sauvignon is a cross between the white grape variety Sauvignon Blanc and red grape variety Cabernet Franc. This vintage shows each parent equally and I call it the "white wine drinkers red wine" for that reason.
My recommendation would be to cellar this wine for bottle aging at least 5 years, but I know my customers will be tempted to try now! Decant, swirl and splash at least 4 hours before drinking!
Barrel aged in new French Oak 10 months. Black cherry, boysenberry, black currant and red currant dominate the aromatics. Herbaceous aromas of roasted red pepper, smoked tomato, dried oregano, thyme, rosemary, sage, and black pepper become evident as the wine opens.
This Cab will cellar for 20 plus years, only continuing to get better and better. She is straightforward and slow in revealing herself. Enjoy our Cabernet Sauvignon’s complex flavors slowly as you watch the sunset or sit in front of your fireplace. Romance will be in the air!
