Winemaker Jesse Katz has a way of coaxing greatness from the appellation and this wine is case in point. Juicy red and blue fruit meet a tight grip of tannins, accented by clove, cinnamon and toasted oak. The finish is rich and supple.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec and 7% Merlot. Deep ruby in color, it has a mineral-driven nose with aromas of cast-iron pan, prosciutto, pencil lead, leather, soy, baked blackberry and blackcurrant with bright red-fruit sparks and floral hints. The palate is medium to full-bodied and tightly coiled at this stage, with a lightly chewy frame and a long, lifted finish. 2,270 cases produced.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (there are small amounts of Malbec and Merlot in the blend) is a solid 2017 with plenty of cassis and currant fruits, notes of violets, tobacco, and gravelly earth, medium to full body, and big, chewy, drying tannins on the finish, which can be common in the vintage. Give it a year or three to let the tannins calm down, then enjoy over the following decade.
