Cabernet Sauvignon

Mountain Estate Vineyard

Following more than four decades planting vineyards and adapting farming practices to the mountain climate and terrain around the winery, we launched our Mountain Estate Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon. The core of this wine is Cabernet Sauvignon grown on steep, west facing terraces that rise above the winery, reaching a towering elevation of 1,400 feet. Other contiguous vineyard blocks yielding fruit of mature character and balance incorporate a great diversity of soils and exposures, providing additional complexity and unmistakable mountain terroir.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Mountain Estate Vineyard is deep garnet-purple and sings of crushed blackcurrants, black cherries and wild blueberries with nuances of lilacs, baker's chocolate, cigar box, pencil lead and truffles. Full-bodied and laden with black fruit and savory layers, it has a fantastic foundation of very ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with amazing length.
