2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
Our 2017 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of bing cherry and cranberry, along with notes of violet and new leather. These beautiful fruit notes are laced with hints of molasses and cracked pepper. At first sip, pronounced flavors of red plum and cola greet the palate, along with subtle whispers of baking spice. Compared to the dark fruit notes in both our Reserve and Block 8 Cabs, the red fruit flavors are more pronounced in our Estate Cab.
The wine has a long finish, with traces of chocolate in the smooth, fine-grained yet firm tannins. The focused flavors and bright acidity perfectly balance and produce a full-bodied yet refined wine. We recommend allowing this wine to decant for 30-40 minutes before drinking to allow the nuanced layers shine through!
