SONOMA COUNTY

Wedding Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon

First planted to Martha's Vineyard clone Cabernet in 1973, the Wedding Vineyard covers eleven gently sloping acres (up to 15 degrees, oriented south-west) on our Mountain Estate at an elevation of 1,200 feet. Approximately nine acres were replanted in 2002 under the careful guidance of David Abreu: seven blocks of Cabernet (clone 337 and Martha's Vineyard clone), one block of Petit Verdot (clone 400) and one block of Cabernet Franc (clone 327).

Tasting Notes

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Wedding Vineyard brings together the best qualities of the year. Dark, seamless and voluptuous, the 2012 stands out for its total sense of balance and class. All the elements fall into place in this gracious, super-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. The 100% new oak is totally integrated.
