2016 Cabernet Sauvignon "The Heron", SLD
This very special wine is made from a single block of Cabernet in our vineyard that has a small slope and excellent drainage. This single barrel selection wine is produced in only two Darnajou barrels, which is the favorite barrel cooper of the Winemaker. The color of the wine is captivating in dark purple, almost black, with intense aromas of mature ripe fruit, cassis, dark chocolate and red fruit. Flavors intensify on the palate with assertive tannins in the entry that are balanced nicely by the structure of this wine. It maintains a creamy, smooth mouth feel which carries over to the finish.
