    About the Wine:

    The amazing ripeness of the vintage is evident in layers of crushed blackberries and boysenberry jam

    Complex spicy oak aromas of mint chocolate and clove are complemented by sweeter palate notes of mocha, caramel and cinnamon

    An immense tannin profile reflective of the rugged hillside vineyards where our Cabernet is grown

    Viticulture Notes:

    The 2017 vintage season came early in Sonoma County, with an early budbreak and unusually cool summer that allowed more hang time. In addition to being incredibly patient, we cut shoots on specific hillside blocks in late fall to impart a signature style of ripeness via desiccation. The result is a palate-filling roundness, richness and sweet viscosity that makes this Cabernet Sauvignon truly unique.

    Winemaking Notes:

    Our 2017 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards yielded the unique fruit and spice nuances that we wanted to capture and express. Thus, individual lots were fermented and oak aged separately until we blended the following spring. One month before bottling a touch of Petite Sirah port, of which we craft only a few barrels, was added to drive the mouth coating depth and fullness of the wine.
