AROMAS & FLAVORS
Vibrant aromas of plum, cedar, cola, cocoa, sandalwood spice and leather awaken the senses, while full-bodied flavors of black cherry, licorice and cedar generously fill the palate. Round tannins and notes of vanilla with toasty caramel add to the lingering, elegant mouthfeel.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with roasted, broiled or barbecued game and red meats such as lamb and beef, as well as pork and veal. Medium and strong-flavored cheeses, such as blue cheese or sharp cheddar, also pair nicely with this wine.
The 2017 season began with record rainfall amounts during the winter, filling our reservoirs after 4 years of drought. Spring was mild, bringing favorable conditions during bloom, which led to a nicely set crop. We experienced more than an average number of hot days in early to mid-summer, and then record highs over Labor Day weekend. Fortunately, the vines were ready to handle the heat with adequate soil moisture supplied by all the rain.
