Gold Medal 2016 Sonoma County Harvest Challenge
Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon


Our Cabernet Sauvignon is dark red in color with aromas of cherry and currant and notes of leather and tobacco leaf, along with hints of dark chocolate and mocha from oak aging. This wine is fruit forward on the entry with a rich, round mouthfeel and fine, supple tannins leading to a long finish.

Gold Medal, 2016 Sonoma County Harvest Challenge
Vintage

2013 was a superb growing season. The wines show beautiful color extraction, intense aromas, and excellent flavor concentration.

Grape Sourcing

We source our grapes from select Central Coast and North Coast vineyards where cool nights and warm afternoon breezes ripen the fruit slowly for intense flavor and elegant textures. North Coast vineyards, including Bald Eagle, showcase blackberry, black currant, richness, and chewy tannins, while Central Coast Pine Creek and Pinnacles feature red currant, plum, dried herb, and firm structure.
