Cabernet Sauvignon is characterized by a gorgeous rich nose with generous bright fruit and deep, concentrated, multi-layered aromas of dark red cherry, blackberries, and caramel. Espresso and cassis mingle with hints of dark chocolate and rose petals. Well-integrated elements of sweet oak and vanilla carefully complement the fruit flavors and the round, rich silky middle. Supple on the palate, yet with a weighty, fruity mouthfeel and a medium tannic finish. The robust profile makes it ideal for big flavor meats. Given proper cellaring this wine will give drinking pleasure for years to come, adding roundness and complexity.

Food pairing notes
Cabernet Sauvignon is a big wine with intense flavor, full body and structure. A wine like this needs to be paired with richer more intense foods. There are a few “classic” food pairings for Cabernet. Meats like lamb, steak, short ribs, venison. While a portabello mushroom and goat cheese tartlets goes perfectly before dinner.
Handpicked October 22, 2014 at 25.5 degrees brix. The grapes were fermented 10 days to dryness, and then macerated an additional twenty-one days to soften and develop the tannins. Following pressing 90% of the wine was moved to 60 gallon French Oak barrels where it received three gentle barrel to barrel rackings. This vintage was barrel aged for twenty-two months prior to bottling. The result is an exceptional example of richness and balance that are the hallmarks of this world renowned
