VARIETAL: Cabernet Sauvignon
VINEYARD: Cairo, Family Home and Turnbull
Notes: We saved the best for last. At the end of a long growing season, we carefully pick the remaining fruit reserved from our best Oakville vineyard blocks. Having patiently waited for these chosen grapes to fully ripen, we harvest the distinct blocks early in the morning. Each fruit source added its own personality to the final wine. Fermenting together allowed the flavors and tannins to marry, resulting in a robust, savory and serious Cab. The blend of the cooperage selected for the 20 month aging process was chosen specifically to showcase this wine’s powerful personality.
This bold, long-lived Cabernet Sauvignon displays robust and masculine character with savory, deep qualities. Brambleberry, dark blue fruit, cigar box, leather, cocoa nibs, wild sage, and warm, dusted slate. Structured yet creamy tannins fill the palate with flavors of blackberry, dry cured meat, dark chocolate covered espresso beans and olive tapenade. Enjoy this spirited wine now or in the next 15 years.
