2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet is the king of grapes. It’s also dad wine.
There is so much shapeless Cabernet in this world that it behooved us to try our hand at producing one with character and balance. We aimed at the old school Cabernets of 1970s California. Yes there is fruit and sunshine in the wine, but there is freshness, juiciness, a touch of green and plenty of vibrancy.
We sourced the fruit from a little ranch just to the west of where the Happy Canyon appellation boundary sits and harvested at the point when the tannins began to soften, but there was still loads of true Cabernet character.
