Wine Tasting Notes
This stunning Cabernet Sauvignon is a tale of two appellations within Lake County. Crafted with grapes grown in the High Valley and Red Hills appellations, it's a seamless representation of the best of both worlds. Together, these vineyards produce a wine with rich cassis aromas marked by notes of lavender and vanilla, that lead to raspberry and cherry flavors elevated with a long tobacco and redcurrant finish. Bright fruit, spice, texture, and all of the tannin is a hallmark of the high elevation vineyards of Lake County. The dark fruits, old world characters and dried herbs come from the lower elevations of north Napa County.
