Our 2017 vintage shines with rich ruby color. Complex and layered, it has firm tannins and a savory character. Walnut oil, leather and high-toned red fruit lead while black currants, vanilla and cedar fills out the palate.
BLEND: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Food Pairing Notes
This wine works great with rich and savory foods and meats like lamb and steak or enjoy this wine with grilled vegetables, aromatic cheeses, mushroom risotto, grilled radicchio, tomato bruschetta and olive tapenade appetizers.
After a relatively mild winter, a cool spring held back bud break and potential frost damage until May. These two factors combined to set the stage for a fruitful vintage. The growing degree days (GDDs) were close to average through June and July but dipped in August. Rainfall was above average through the growing season which increased disease pressure and crop load. However, because September and October were warmer and drier than average, the grapes had more time to mature and develop flavor. 2017 pulled off the seldom seen scenario of high-quality wine in a high yielding vintage.
