2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

North Coast, California

The Region

The North Coast AVA spans six winegrowing counties—including Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino—all influenced to a degree by the Pacific Ocean and offering a wide range of microclimates. For this release, the majority of Cabernet Sauvignon was grown in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley, blending rich fruit from the valley floor with the intense color and flavor of high-elevation fruit.

Alexander Valley 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.”

— Winemaker Heidi Bridenhagen
