2018 Kenefick Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, Chris's Cuvée
Heavier crop loads and a very cool growing season allowed for some ideal extended hang time. Perfect fall weather gave way to even ripeness patiently brought in throughout the valley.
Baker's chocolate, fine tobacco leaf, and a brooding dark fruit profile form an intense nose. Balanced tannin to oak ratios supports the jammy and refined fresh berry profile.
88% Cabernet Sauvignon
7% Petit Verdot
