2017 ROSENQUIST CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$100

Deep Ruby in color with aromas of fresh blackberry and cherry preserves, layered with dried herbs, cedar, and sweet vanilla and toasted oak. Rich, concentrated black plums and cherry, baking spices, and the signature bay leaf of Mount Veeder. Mountain tannins build an age-worthy structure. Lengthy finish resonates with dark fruit, balanced acidity, and a hint of mocha.

The rows of Cabernet grapes are framed by the surrounding mountain tops.

The Rosenquist vineyard is one of our three estate Mt. Veeder ranches. The elevation: a lofty 1,500-1,600 feet above sea level, creating unique and rugged growing conditions which require vines to work to produce low yields of high quality fruit.  The vineyard is beautiful, with steeply terraced vineyard rows wrapping around the mountainside.
