2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Cassata Vineyards
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in this wine are grown in deep rocky soils. The aromatic approach brings you right into the vineyard and creates a sense of place with aromas of cassis liquor, bramble, dried roses. Flavors of dried black currant, currant leaf, black berry and raspberry jam, roasted pie fruits and red plum come through the first taste and are followed with notes of spice, cedar, fresh leather, roasted red bell pepper, fresh cigar tobacco, and a little gravel finish. Drink now or the next 10 years.
