Rich, bright fruit with notes of blackberry, cherry, and black currant with a touch of green olive oil that may remind some of a classic Bordeaux, making it another great food wine in our portfolio. The soft tannins provide a smooth mouthfeel and a texturally pleasing wine.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the eastern side of Alexander Valley in the Mayacamas Mountains at an elevation of 1,700 feet. It's a south-facing bowl that gets the perfect mix and morning and afternoon sun exposure, creating a complex flavor profile to the wine. The bowl, with a well-draining diverse array of soils, is rich in calcium, gravel, sand, and clay. This terroir allows Cabernet Sauvignon to achieve a higher quality of tannin, intense blackberry fruit, and overall complexity.
