Caramelized currant, sun-ripened black cherry, French lavender and freshly shaved cedar rise from the glass. The palate is soft yet complex, offering polished tannin and an underlying graphite like- minerality. Essence of plum puree, toasted hazelnuts, tomato paste and fig newton shine. Cassis liquor, green cardamom and coffee custard complete the persistent finish.
Cabernet Sauvignon comprises the largest planted acreage at Cass, thus we have the ability to choose fruit from a variety of sites, soils, and clones across the vineyard. Picked in early September, the grapes were fermented into 5-ton open top fermenters and pumped over multiple times per day to achieve maximum extraction, which was necessary to match the ripe flavors of the vintage.
