Concentrated aromas of red berries, blackberry, black cherries, and undertones of peat, pine sap, and caramel are featured on the nose of this classy Cabernet Sauvignon. Dense silky tannins envelop the mid-palate, adding volume and density to undertones of black cherry, dark chocolate, licorice, and spice. Balanced acidity and great tension carry through on the lingering finish. Pair this wine with roasted lamb, top sirloin or Cabernet-laced beef stew.
The 2018 vintage was a bountiful vintage marked by cool, consistent temperatures and a timely rainfall for bud break in March and April. Harvest began on September tenth, and the grapes were of the highest quality with lower alcohol and high acidity.
These grapes were grown at Austin’s Vineyard, home to our winery in the heart of Rutherford’s viticultural area, one of the world’s preeminent sites for Cabernet Sauvignon. Its loamy soils and sunny, warm days create an elegant wine with red fruit flavors and smooth tannins. We farm our vineyards naturally, using the principles of regenerative agriculture, and they are certified organic.
