2016 Cabernet Sauvignon - Lisa's Vineyard

Top Block, Lisa's Vineyard, Knights Valley, Sonoma County

Tasting Notes

Start with two wonderful cabernet grape growers, Lisa and Harvey, add their superior sustainable farming practices in Sonoma County's top cab growing region, finish with 40 months of French oak aging and artisan winemaking techniques. The result is this amazing wine. A dark purple/black hue, exotic spice and blackberry aromas, rich blueberry, spiced plum, and dark cherry textures and flavors compose this crazy complex, full body wine.

Production Notes

Innovation, extraction and attention to detail from vineyard to bottle.

Winemaker Notes

This cerebral composition of aromas and flavors invite intensity and complexity. Barrel tasting through this lot during its youth promised what is now delivered in this dense, extracted cabernet. A tapestry of ripe berry, exotic spices and rich textures are weaved together with weft precision. Proper aging will reward your patience.

Cooperage Notes

Aged 42 months in 2 new (22%) French oak barrels, 1 new American Oak barrel (11%), and 5 neutral oak barrels
