The first ever MTGA Cabernet Sauvignon has arrived! It was a collaborative effort with Anderson Conn Valley as this comes from Block #2 of the property. The catch is that it had to be made in an entirely different style as to not “compete” with the wines already coming from the property. Luckily enough single block bottlings have only happened a couple of times and we were more than happy to take our own shot at making AWESOME Napa Valley Cabernet.
Big and rich right from the get-go this is a Napa Cabernet with some Bordeaux flair. If you like the approachability of Napa Valley with a touch of earthiness and spice you have come to the right place. The 5% Merlot blended in helps accentuate some of the fruit dark and red fruit characteristics while softening up the mid-palate. Bottle exclusively in magnums for better aging potential (and to make a big statement when the bottle hits the table) this Cabernet is one that will continue to evolve for years to come.
