2017 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon
The fruit for this wine is grown at our Dos Olivos Vineyard in the Oakville AVA. The well-drained soils and moderate temperature of this vineyard produce deeply fruited and well-extracted Cabernet Sauvignons. Deep ruby color and richly woven with aromas of red cherry fruit, mushroom earthiness, olive tapenade, and warm spices, the 2017 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon shows true Oakville characteristics. It has a fresh fruit expressing wild cherries, blackberry, cinnamon, vanilla, black olives, plums. The structure is firm and balanced showing power and freshness. The wine finishes long with dark chocolate notes and smooth tannins.
2017 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, 90 points, Wine Advocate
This deep ruby wine opens to primary aromas of cherry, mixed berries, and plum, with hints of graphite. Secondary aromas show graham cracker, vanilla, spun sugar, toast, coffee, and cola. The entry is bright, and like the aromas, the flavors expanding on the palate show primarily fresh red fruit integrated with oak influences of toast, graham cracker, and vanilla. Ripe tannins are soft and polished, and acidity is bright and juicy. The finish is long, with the red fruit continuing to the end.
