DRV Cabernet Sauvignon

2015

The core of this distinct Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised from the best barrels from blocks 2, 3, 4 and 9 from our Double River Vineyard. The fruit, hand harvested at cool temperatures, delivered expressive and beautiful nuances at harvest. These one-of-a-kind lots enjoyed precious extended maceration during fermentation ensuring depth and structure for barrel aging. It gracefully matured in French and American oak for 20 months. Only the most intense and complex barrels from these various lots were chosen for our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

This elegant Cabernet shows vivid aromas of ripe cherry, plum jam and toasty oak.it will also reveal noticeable hints of cassis, blackberry, licorice and leather. The outburst of ripe, red berry fruits is pleasing to the mouthfeel, leading to more depth and definite layers on the palate. Soft, oaky tones create an alluring accent, complemented by mature tannins and subtle acidity, delivering a fine balance. This wine was crafted for that special occasion and will show even better when paired with portobello mushrooms, grilled lamb chops or and aged Gorgonzola.
