Winemaking Notes
A powerful Cabernet Sauvignon from the hillsides of Alexander Valley has aromas of lush, red plum and dark berries that dominate the glass, while hints of cassis and milk chocolate play in the background. The dried fig and chewy tannins give this wine a strong backbone, while the 18 months of barrel aging have softened this bold wine just enough to enjoy now or with a cheese and charcuterie board, filet mignon with grilled vegetables or a dark chocolate mousse. Drink over the next five to seven years.
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 growing season was about as close to ideal as we could’ve asked for. We received an average amount of rain over winter, with only one big storm in early March that topped off soil moisture. Spring was pleasant, so the vines got off to a great start. Average temperatures continued through summer with the occasional heat spike that Cabernet seems to love. Warm temperatures continued through the fall, which meant harvest started about a week earlier than normal. Harvest kicked off September 12 and ended around October 11 under ideal conditions.
