2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate

$45.00

Overview

Our first Estate Cabernet Sauvignon release to our S.V. members is a tribute to the early winegrowing dats of our region. This grape was one of the first varieties planted in the Santa Clara Valley well before the Civil War. We grow these grapes with great care and attention, with a highly restricted yield, to develop the excellent concentration we find in the wine.

Tasting Notes

The light percentage of new oak adds a delicate enhancement to the wine without overshadowing the natural deliciousness. The result of meticulous winegrowing is a very well-balanced wine with a generous burst of black cherry, currant, black plum, and boysenberry aromas and flavors. Hints of cinnamon and baking spice along with oregano round out the wine that has smooth tannins and a complex finish. This Cabernet makes a perfect fall pairing with our recipe for Moroccan Spiced Lamb Meatballs with Mint Sauce.
