2020 Cabernet Sauvignon

North Coast, California

Fruit for this expressive Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Mendocino sub-region of the North Coast AVA. With both richness an depth, this is a food-friendly, future-friendly wine at home with a variety of cuisines.


  • Luscious dark fruit, predominant black cherry and blackberry
  • Undertones of brown sugar, coffee, cedar and a hint of tobacco


  • Ripe black cherry, fresh picked blackberries, plum and chocolate
  • Great structure, well balanced and a long finish

Mendocino fruit provides the backbone for this expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. To fully extract color and tannins, the juice was left in contact with the skins for an extended maceration period, drawing layers of aroma and flavors from the fruit while giving this wine its elegant depth and body across the palate.”
