2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

Monticello

85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot

Our 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the oldest blocks on Carter’s Mountain coupled with smidge of Petit Verdot from our estate vineyard. Even in the much ballyhooed 2017 vintage, whose wines are most readily identifiable by their ripe exotic fruit character, this cool, mountaintop vineyard produced a classic Bordeaux-style Cabernet, sporting textbook aromas of ripe black cherry, currants, cedar, and tobacco, along with a wonderfully balanced acid-tannin structure that all but guarantees the wine will evolve gracefully over the next 5+ years.
