This is a full-bodied Cabernet that was aged for 2 years in oak - 50% of which was new.

Staff Pick Notes

When we first got wines from Angwin I liked their second label more than their first. The first label (this wine) showed tremendous potential but was a little frustrating at the time. I had written in my notebook “needs a couple of years.” Well it is two years later and this Cabernet has shaken off its chaff of young tannins to emerge gorgeous and cut. Spiced currants, forest underbrush, sweet tobacco, subtle oak, and even a little bit meaty. While this is out of its shell now it will continue to improve throughout the decade. Jon Larson (the maker of this fine stuff) knows that one of the most important ingredients for classic Cabernet Sauvignon is time.
