Winemakers Notes - Harvested from the warmest parts of Lake County and the Alexander Valley for optimal richeness, our 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon was then aged in French oak for 16 months. Cardinal red in color, our Cabernet starts out with rich and delicious red fruits on the nose that flow into to bing cherry, watermelon, candied plum and cr�me br�l�e. The soft, yet fine, tannins have notes of coffee, rose petals and wet slate. As always, we�ve created a Cabernet Sauvignon that pairs perfectly with a range of foods, from lamb and duck, to peppercorn Ahi steaks and barbeque chicken. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, and 5% Malbec.
