2018 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
22 months in 90% New French oak barrels
Boysenberry, blackberry, rose petals, tobacco and leather are the first impressions with this Cabernet. The wine has a lovely complexity and roundness which reminds us of blueberry compote with vanilla and graham cracker. This elegant wine has a silky smooth palate, and a full, creamy presence on the palate. This well-rounded wine opens up and evolves as you drink it. The structure, body, and lingering finish indicate this complex wine is built to age.
We combine the best of our vineyards in this wine. Each year our properties express themselves slightly differently, and our role is to take the best of what they give us and craft a truly exceptional wine. The Pocai Ranch generally brings power, boldness & dark red fruits, while our Fig Tree Vineyard provides the broadness and the layers of flavors and spice. We manage each site specific to its unique characteristics, with the goal of only producing the highest quality grapes and resulting wine.
