2016 Our Tribute Cabernet Sauvignon

Intense red with purple hues in color, the nose is layered with brown spice and ripe black fruit. Powerful yet finessed, waves of dark red fruit, aromatic spice, and hints of chocolate prevail. The 2016 vintage is currently sold out. Please check back in October 2021 for release of our next vintage.


    James MacPhail's Notes

    This wine is crafted as Our Tribute to our fathers, who inspired Jim, Peter, and myself to pursue our calling in life. We've partnered with a small family grower on Moon Mountain who embodies that pursuit, growing beautiful, healthy Cabernet Sauvignon amid steep and rocky terrain that requires incredible passion, dedication, and commitment to producing some of the finest Cabernet in Sonoma County.

    Tasting Notes

    An intense red with purple hues in color, the aroma is layered with brown spice and ripe black fruit. This wine has immense power and finesse. The flavors are layered with dark roasted oak, aromatic spice and ripe fruit with hints of chocolate and dark toffee.

    Production Notes

    Grapes were hand-sorted and gently crushed. After native-yeast fermentation, the wine went through an extended maceration period to soften the tannins, and malolactic fermentation occurred in barrel. The wine is bottled un-fined and unfiltered to preserve complexity.

    Moon Mountain

    Perched high above the Sonoma Valley on the southeastern border with the Napa Valley, Moon Mountain produces wines with an intensity of flavor and color to match the intense nature of its terrain. Rocky, steep, and sun-drenched, Moon Mountain is celebrated for its powerful, high-elevation Cabernet Sauvignon.
