77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot
Dark, juicy fruit and elements of a full spice rack set the stage for this lovely wine. The palate showcases blueberry pie, red cherry cola and toasted oak. The silky tannin and soft acidity anchor a sweet savoriness resembling clove tobacco, fresh spearmint and dried lavender. Red currant bud, plum preserves and vanilla bean linger to the close.
Cabernet Sauvignon comprises the largest planted acreage at Cass, thus we are privileged with the ability to select fruit from a wide variety of sites, soils and clones across the vineyard. With roughly 70 acres spread over 5 distinct blocks, we picked from late September to the end of October, each pick having unique levels of ripeness, with earlier picks lending crisp acid’s while the later picks more sugar’s and riper nuanced flavors. Once properly blended these traits lead to remarkably balanced wines, with just enough oak to lend structure and softer tannins while allowing the expressive quality of the fruit to remain the focus.
