End of Summer 3-Bottle Collection
Three fan favorites, one collection. Enjoy a few more barbecues and some great weekends soaking up the sun before toasting the end of summer. This collection includes one bottle each of the following:
2017 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon
The fruit for this wine is grown at our Dos Olivos Vineyard. The well-drained soils and moderate temperature of this vineyard produce deeply fruited and well-extracted Cabernet Sauvignons. Deep ruby color and richly woven with aromas of red cherry fruit, mushroom earthiness, olive tapenade, and warm spices, the 2017 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon shows true Oakville characteristics. It has a fresh fruit expressing wild cherries, blackberry, cinnamon, vanilla, black olives, plums. The structure is firm and balanced showing power and freshness. The wine finishes long with dark chocolate notes and smooth tannins.
2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Fermentation and barrel aging in ideal conditions produced a deep ruby wine with inviting aromas of red and black ripe fruit, chocolate nib, vanilla, and cedar. The big, round entry expands to a mouth-filling plushness showing flavors of bright cherry and layers of texture. Tannins are seamless, well integrated, and more structured than drying. The natural sweetness of the fruit balances the bright acidity and follows through to the lingering blackberry and caramel-laced finish.
2016 Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon
Pencil shavings, dark plum, coffee, hazelnut, bing cherry, and cinnamon graham cracker aromas jump from the glass. The sweet, ripe entry reveals toasty oak and rich layered flavors mimicking the aromas. The fruit carries through to the finish, which is long, spicy, and brooding. This is an elegant wine to enjoy now or save and watch it develop further.
