Our 2018 Cooley Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is rich with juicy cassis, dark blackfruit and soft floral notes. The palate is medium bodied with robust tannins and balanced acidity culminating in a long, smooth finish. This elegant Cabernet is best enjoyed with a grilled filet and cherry reduction, chocolate coffee pot de crème or simply on its own.
Bordeaux varietals thrive on steep terrain and volcanic soil and our Cooley Ranch vineyard is precisely the kind of landscape they love, with elevations ranging from 800 to 2,040 feet and influenced by cool Pacific breezes. Cooley Ranch is blessed with a bright red, volcanic-based soil that is sought after for its high-quality grape-growing potential and one of the reasons our winemakers
carefully selected this land to plant on. Also, due to being above the fog line, Cooley warms up during harvest to allow for hotter growing temperatures and extra tannin development. All of this provides beautifully ripened fruit and balanced acidity ultimately reflecting the best of our superior lots of Bordeaux varietals.
