2015 Flat Rock Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Flat Rock Ranch vineyard is located near the north corner of where Yountville Cross Road meets Silverado Trail, on State Lane. This prized, complex fruit from the Yountville Appellation is a result of unique geological and meteorological conditions: volcanic soils similar to the adjacent Stags Leap District, but also display ancient coastal deposits, and sedimentary and alluvial soils that provide beneficial stress for our vines. Marine air currents from San Pablo Bay to the south are caught when they reach the "Yountville Mounts," providing a natural cooling effect that balances warm, sunny days that ripen the rich tannins of our hallmark Cabernet Sauvignon to elegant distinction.
The deep purple color introduces a bouquet of aromas that resemble cassis, clove spice, and blueberry jam. This medium-bodied wine has well-integrated tannins and impeccable acidity that are complemented by flavors of ripe cherries, vanilla, and toasted oak that leads to a delectable finish.
