2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon



As my French friend says, Je ne consulte que mon plaisir (I only consult my pleasure). We’d say this Cab embodies that sentiment. Drop into dense currants, sarsaparilla and a nice Cuban cigar puff on the nose. Velvety-textured tannins with a classic Bordeaux structure yields a long finish. 85% Cabernet, 15% Merlot from our 27-year-old vines planted in gravelly, clay loam soil behind the winery. Fermented in small bins and aged for 12 months in neutral French oak with an additional 6 months in 50% new French oak. Decant to drink now or age for many years (10+). Pairs with Osso Buco’s depth or New York steak au poivre. Cheese plate contains Bellwether Farms Carmody, Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam or an aged Cheddar.
