Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon brims with ripe, concentrated aromas of black currant, loganberry and fig, underscored by threads of warm spice and mocha. The wine’s lush core of ripe brambly fruit persists through the finish. Full-bodied, with a supple mouthfeel and approachable tannins, this Cabernet pairs well with port-braised beef short ribs topped with mint leaves.
Ratings
90 Points “A red with pleasant berries, orange peel and hints of hazelnuts. Medium body. Soft, silky tannins. Medium finish. Drink now.” -jamessuckling.com
Vineyard Notes
The 2017 growing season offered superlative growing conditions with abundant rain at the beginning of the year. Harvest brought lower yields with fruit of excellent quality.
Production Notes
The grapes were hand-harvested in the cool morning hours to ensure optimal flavor. At the winery, the fruit was hand-sorted, gently de-stemmed and lightly crushed. Following a 13 to 20-day maceration period to maximize color and flavor extraction and to also polish the tannins, the wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels (36% new) for 20 months.
