Description

The Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from three vineyards: Mast Ranch, Linda Vista Ranch and Dry Creek Ranch. Mast offers juicy acid and robust dark fruit. Linda Vista Ranch adds jammy red fruit characteristics, and firm, elegant tannins. Dry Creek adds soft, supple tannins and darker fruit notes. The Malbec, sourced from Flat Rock Ranch, enhances the depth and structure of the wine. Overall, the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvingon is delightfully balanced and approachable.

Tasting Notes

Impeccable deep crimson hue invites you to a truly wonderful Cab Sauv. With aromas of chocolate covered strawberries, blackberries, toasted oak and cigar box, this full-bodied wine is not shy on the palate, showcasing notes of Santa Rosa Plum, maple syrup and baking spice. The balanced tannins linger at the back of your tongue, making you yearn for the next sip. This wine would be a wonderful candidate to be cellared for a few years or enjoyed tonight with a hearty meal, maybe braised short ribs with a Porcini polenta.
