Cabernet Sauvignon
Sonoma County, 2012

$ 35.00

A few barrels from the 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

This wine is a happy experiment of leaving some Scherrer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon that did not fit into either of our usual bottlings in barrel for an extended period of time — nearly 4 years in wood with the remainder in stainless steel barrel. Aromas and flavors of cassis, slight herbal, soy, plums, leather all play leap frog in the glass. On the finish, the important mouth-watering acidity cleanses and rejuvenates like our much-appreciated winter rainfall.
