2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Lake County
This Cabernet showcases aromas of nutmeg, cedar, and tobacco with a hint of raspberry. On the palate jammy flavors of blackberry, raspberry and cherry intermingle with notes of roasted coffee. This wine finishes with firm tannins leading to well-balanced fruit and oak integration. While ready to drink now this wine can be enjoyed for years to come.
At elevations ranging from 1,400 to 1,800 feet and located at the base of Mount Konocti, once an active volcano, the vineyard features rolling hills, red volcanic soils, and a cooling effect from Clear Lake, one of North America’s oldest natural lakes. The heat of the day along with the lake’s effect make for well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
