Palate

This wine makes statement- aromas that burst out of the glass, then flavors of deep blackberry, leather and dark chocolate. Drinkable now. Cellar worthy for 15+ years.

Growing Conditions

The Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested in October from the O’Connell Family Estate Vineyard Creek Block, located in Oak Knoll District. The grapes from this block have amazing structure due to the sand and gravel soil structure. The estate vineyard lends depth, richness & complexity. The 2012 vintage had great yields that reached perfect ripening with classic elegance.

Aging

Barrel aged in French Oak 30 months.

Food Pairing

The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon goes with so many dishes, from meat to fowl to the sea. And it is great to just sip! It complements grilled ahi tuna with garlic aioli, mashed potatoes with olive oil sautéed kale, wild boar, 5 spice chicken, orange olive oil drizzled grilled vegetables, holiday turkey or just by itself….
