A balanced Cabernet Sauvignon ideal for weekday meals, this wine makes its intentions known with aromas of cherry cola and grilled dark fruit complemented by savory yet subtle sage, cloves, and dried lavender. The bouquet prepares the palate for a complex marriage of fruits, warm herbs and spices, and plush velvety tannins, all perched atop mouth-watering acidity. Depth and approachability propel this wine to the top of the list when looking for something to accompany a wide variety of fare.
All cellar practices for this Cabernet Sauvignon are planned and performed with the goal of producing a fruit focused wine that is approachable in its youth, including a short and cool maceration period to ensure well balanced tannins. The final wine blend is aged in our own second year French oak barrels to add subtle oak characteristics and to allow fruit forward flavors to be center stage. This wine is bottled after 15 months to capture the youth of the wine in the bottle.
