Signed by Jim Nantz, this impressive Cabernet Sauvignon presents bramble fruit on the nose with hints of sage, smoke and raspberry. Soft, well-integrated tannins and a velvety texture combine with a dense palate of forest floor, tobacco with a lingering finish of a dark raspberry.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Deep burgundy in color and full-bodied, this impressive Cabernet Sauvignon presents bramble fruit on the nose with hints of sage, smoke and raspberry. Soft, well-integrated tannins and a velvety texture combine with a dense palate of forest floor, tobacco with a lingering finish of a dark raspberry. Balanced acidity makes this wine a perfect match with your favorite recipe or seasonal dish.
Vineyard Notes
Rio Lago Vineyard in the Alexander Valley sits above the valley floor alongside nearly 700 feet of Russian River frontage. The Alexander Valley’s surrounding hillsides block the coastal fogs that cover much of Sonoma County on summer mornings, allowing this vineyard to keep a little warmer than some of the neighboring appellations. However, gentle coastal breezes manage to find their way between the hillsides to cool the region in the evening. This climate, combined with well-drained, gravelly soils help the region produce some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon varietal grapes available.
Production Notes
98% Cabernet Sauvignon 2% Petit Verdot
Winemaker Notes
Grapes were hand sorted and gently crushed. Native yeast was used for fermentation and the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in the barrel. After primary fermentation the wine went through an extended maceration period to soften the tannins. After 22 months aging the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
