ThereAfter Cabernet Sauvignon Escher Vineyard, 2019

Produced by ThereAfter Wine Company

Plum, blackberry, leather, underbrush, pipe smoke, and Kalamata olives. Soft, rich, and mouthwatering, with firm tannins that melt into a juicy finish. Farmed by us, by hand, without a tractor. We use our experiences at Escher to explore and learn regenerative, organic viticulture. We also got married among these vines right before harvesting this vintage.
