Tasting Notes

Contemporary and elegant, our 2016 West Coast Cabernet Sauvignon is dark in color with red purple hues. On the nose aromas of mocha, boysenberry, currant, cooked blackberry, toasted vanilla. The palate is a crowd pleaser with clove, lavender, blueberry that leads into a long and seamless finish of black plum and mocha.

Vineyard Notes

We sourced our grapes from three main appellations on the Central Coast to create our classic California Cabernet Sauvignon. One of our favorite vineyards is in Paso Robles, where large diurnal temperature swings produce big, spicy, berry flavors. From Paicines, which is located in warm San Benito County, we added balance and richness, which comes from the fruit’s dark, brambly flavors and ripe tannins. San Lucas Valley, which has steady coastal breezes and slightly cooler overall temperatures, provided the dynamic tannins and ripe, red fruit characters that added the perfect complement to the overall profile .

Vintage Notes

2016 was another brilliant growing season for most of California, although prolonged drought conditions continued resulting in lower yields in the vineyards. The conditions throughout the growing season were consistent, even and warm with few unbearable, damaging heat spikes. California did experience a wet October, but most grapes were already picked and safely in the winery before the rains began. Overall, the quality and fruit characteristics in this vintage were very good with well-developed flavor profiles and excellent color development. .

Winemaking Notes

To achieve the rich varietal expression and approachable fruit profile in our Cabernet Sauvignon, we harvested our fruit at the peak of ripeness, followed by frequent pump-overs throughout fermentation. This constant contact between the skins and juice enables maximum flavor extraction from the fruit. We then aged the wine for approximately 10 months in a combination of American and French oak barrels to lend sweet, toasty vanilla tones and build structure.
