2016 Block VII Old World Cabernet Sauvignon Pine Mtn-Cloverdale Peak

Tasting Notes

A classic old world style wine that is also rich and thick. This Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Block VII section of the vineyard on Pine Mountain. Great color and richness yield flavors of black currant, blackberries, green peppercorns and bell peppers that are followed with gentle spices and a balanced mouthfeel. Aged for 26 months in all French oak barrels gives this wine a gentle spice and a balanced mouthfeel.

Production Notes

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker Notes

Pine Mountain Vineyards sits on the upper western flank of Pine Mountain, at an elevation 0f 2,200 to 3,000 feet. The high elevation farming reliably delivers fruit intense in color and flavor. The micro-climate of the vineyard exhibits all the characteristics associated with high-elevation viticulture. These include cooler daytime and warmer nighttime temperatures than in the valley, longer sunlight hours, and cooling oceanic breezes. Ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon of great character.
