Our Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant wine with well integrated oak and silky tannins. Sweet notes of dark fruit and vanilla are met with flavors of toast and tea in the mid-palate. We blend our Cabernet Sauvignon with 5% Petite Sirah which gives essence of layered spice, clove and pepper that complete the wine. VINIFICATION Cabernet and Petite Sirah thrive in California’s benchland and valley floor vineyards. Here roots search deep for water and nutrients and resulting grapes are bursting with concentrated flavors. Skin to juice ratio is relatively small resulting in velvety tannins in the final wine. French oak influence contributed to the toasty vanilla qualities in the wine and helped soften tannins for our approachable, easy-to-drink style of Cabernet. VINTAGE 2019 was a year of perseverance and ultimately triumph over adversity. A cold winter caused bud break to occur several days later than expected. Those cool temperatures permeated spring and summer, which affected the output of the vines in the form of a lighter fruit set. Unpredictable weather later in the season forced us to be diligent in the vineyard, and that attentiveness paid off. The harvest that came from 2019 was rich in acidity, flavor, and balance that translated into an excellent vintage of finished wines.
