This wine offers classic varietal characteristics like ripe cherry aromas, complex flavors, and silky tannins. As distinctive as it is, it’s also friendly and unpretentious with plenty of wild currant and plum flavors, with hints of allspice and dark chocolate on the palate.
Our 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from 50% Monterey County and 50% Lodi Californian vineyards known for consistently producing top-notch fruit. The warmer weather vineyards give this wine its fruit-forward characteristics while the cooler vineyards balance the acidity. The different varietal expressions produced in each vineyard allow us to create a balanced and inviting Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wine was fermented for one week at 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
After settling and racking, the Cabernet Sauvignon was introduced to French and American oak. The resulting wine is a smooth, easy drinking style of Cabernet designed to be enjoyed upon release.
Food Pairing Notes
