Gold Medal Winner from the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition!
According to Wine Enthusiast - Made from 100% Cabernet, this is a fine everyday wine. It’s dry, full-bodied and satisfying in blackberry, cola and currant flavors, with a nice kiss of oak. The alcohol level is nice and low. Ready to drink now.
Winemakers Notes - Our 2009 Director’s Cabernet Sauvignon offers enticing aromatics and succulent flavors of boysenberries, cherries, cola, and mint. Sophisticated and well textured with supple tannins, you’ll also find nuances of oak and spices on the finish. The perfect accompaniment to grilled lamb chops, brisket, or wild mushroom risotto.
Because Sonoma County possesses so many different microclimates and terroir variations, the virtue of our Director’s wines lies in the blending process. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is made from several clonal selections growin in vineyards that have distinctly different soil compositions, elevations and climates. The result is a fragrant and complex wine with luscious body and plenty of dark, juicy flavors of plums, cassis and crushed wild berries.
