Our #5 Red Wine from our May 21, 2016 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event.

Rich and robust aromas of blackberry, bing cherry, and black currants are accented with sage, dried herbs, espresso bean, and dark chocolate. Secondary aromas of hints of cigar box and vanilla fill the nose. Bold and full-bodied on the palate, this wine offers flavors of cherry, dried berries, and cassis with subtle mocha and truffle nuances. A firm but smooth texture of pure blackberry fruit and coffee brings this balanced wine a well-rounded finish.

Wine AdvocateTasted from barrel, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is very promising, revealing a youthfully primary bouquet of currants and plums that's already integrated its new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, richly structured and generous, with a sun-kissed core of fruit and a dry, fine-grained finish. A cuvée that includes purchased fruit, this is typically a great value. I'm looking forward to seeing it from bottle.
