Taste

A shade deeper and darker than our California Cabernet, it's perfumed with ripe black cherry, creamy vanilla, spice and brown sugar. Substantial on the palate with hardy tannins and interwoven flavors of brambly fruit, cherry and a touch of roasted butterscotch. Food ready with lingering chocolate cherry finish.

Serve

The richly fruity flavors and tannins make this the perfect wine for aged Gouda, cheddar and other flavorful cheeses.

Pair

Roasted meats: Beef, pork or duck
Grilled foods: Lamb skewers, pepper crusted hanger steak or Portobello mushrooms
Slow-cooked dishes: Braised lamb, boeuf bourguignon and osso buco
Pasta dishes: Marinara sauces with meat or cream based dishes

About the Appellation

North Coast AVA is influenced by the cool coastal air and fog from the Pacific Ocean. This creates temperatures that are consistently cooler with higher annual rainfall than many other popular growing appellations for Cabernet. The 2016 year brought warm temperatures to the North Coast region throughout the growing season. By midsummer, the combination of warm daytime temperatures and cool coastal fog helped balance the development of sugars, producing rich complex flavors and aromatics in the wine creating a spectacular & highly sought after vintage.
