This Cabernet Sauvignon has effusive notes of cherry liqueur, chocolate, and forest. Lots of nice fruit extraction and it is big in the mouth. In the middle the fruit gets darker and develops some intense licorice flavors which balance into a long finish.
Clay Station’s distinct soil is a direct result of eons of runoff from the Sierra Nevada mountain range, imbuing the land with a unique set of minerals. The mix of large granite and stone cobbles that break up the soil profile create excellent drainage. Additionally, a rocky soil component over a layer of fertile red soil allows for deep root penetration and ultimately a stable vine during times of low moisture and heat. Remarkably, Clay Station's terroir is very similar to Bordeaux, making it an ideal match for the 337 clone and Cabernet Sauvignon.
