Cabernet Sauvignon

Estate Double River Vineyard

This elegant wine is crafted from two stellar blocks at our Double River Estate vineyard. The freshness of the fruit from Block 9, and the balance of the fruit from Block 4, marry beautifully in this unique rendition of Cabernet Sauvignon. The small and concentrated berries deliver a fruit-driven wine with plenty of substance, yet there is sophistication and refinement. Our goal with this wine is not to over-extract, but to capture and reveal the beautiful and attractive fruit from our estate. The most expressive and pronounced barrels from these two lots were chosen after 20 months of aging, and blended together prior to bottling.

Our Estate Cabernet leads off with dark berries, cassis and ripe cherry. Striking notes of blueberry and lavender are preserved on the aroma, with serious accents of dark plum, leather and tobacco in the background. The initial taste of ripe berries offers a sweet and lingering sensation in the mid-palate, followed by fine acidity and modest tannin. The use of carefully selected new French oak allowed us to lift and preserve the aromatics, and deliver remarkable integration between fruit and oak. The vivid fruit carries through towards the end of the palate, creating a lively, yet luscious finish. The flavor profile of this wine will be even more accentuated when paired with pepper crusted ahi tuna, prime rib or an aged cheddar. Cheers!
