Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016

Produced by Ranch Road Vineyards

This wine is the epitome of a Sonoma County Cab. This small-lot wine is made from the highest-quality mountain fruit in the region and receives extensive sun on its steep and hilly vineyards through the year. Our Cab has notes of juicy blackberry and redwood, reminiscent of its origins. With a lush and velvety vanilla note paired with spicy pepperiness on the backside, this dry Cab is a fan favorite. We recommend serving this wine to accompany a steak or cheddar burger, or saving for date night. This Cabernet can age up to 5 years to open up for further complexity and depth, or you can enjoy it now!
