Cabernet Sauvignon
Sonoma County, 2005

$ 50.00

A few barrels from the 2005 Scherrer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon harvest spoke neither of the individual site, or the appellation, but insisted on a place of their own. This harmonious wine with good varietal character should give substantial pleasure without significant bottle age — two to five years from the vintage should be sufficient.

Winemaker's Notes

When a portion of Dad’s vineyard in Alexander Valley does not fit perfectly into the vineyard designate or the appellation bottling (below), and it is really nice, what do you do with it? Bottle it separately and give it a different name. Maybe try a different approach to the cellaring. Here, minimal use of new oak allows the simple pleasure of the varietal to show itself at a price suited more for everyday use. It has straightforward cassis, plum, with a clean, refreshing finish. Past bottlings like this have been very popular.
