The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied, ultra-premium artisan wine that drinks nicely right away or cellars well for decades. The nose is soft with hints of black currant and bell pepper; mid-body is full and balanced with firm edges; finish is long (30+ seconds) with complex tannins. Barrel program for the 2017 vintage was 17 months in 100% new French oak. We bottled 243 cases unfined and unfiltered.
Pair with full-flavored dishes. Good to drink now; ages beautifully for 25 or more years.
