Tasting Notes

A Cabernet Sauvignon that was hand-harvested from two vineyard sites on Sonoma Mountain: Murray Ranch and Black Hole. Hand-harvested, fermented with native yeasts and then aged in a combination of new and older oak for 18 months. Dense with cassis fruit, spice and oaky tannins on the finish. Impressively balanced and clearly a Sonoma Cab that will age for years to come.

Staff Pick Notes

This Cabernet Sauvignon here is exactly the kind of cooler climate zone expressions of a wine that can sometimes be really muscular. In Sonoma these vines produce a focused lighter red fruit character with enough depth to satisfy lovers of Napa Cabs as well! Velvety texture on the palate and some time in barrell to add a softness and spice to entice all. This is also a very limited offering of only 400 cases. We are very lucky to have this made for us. It was a hit this Thanksgiving and I will be personally enjoying a few more for my friends and family!
