Clay Shannon Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, North Coast, Lake County|
Clay Shannon began his career as a vineyard manager, farming wine regions of California. Now as the owner of Shannon Ridge Family of Wines, his passion is simple.... to grow the best fruit possible, while preserving the land for future generations. For Clay, sustainability is not just a philosophy, it’s a way of life. Cabernet is made from Lake County fruit grown with sustainable and organic farming practices.
Bright fruit, spice and texture come from the high elevations of Lake County and dark fruits, old-world characters and dried herbs come from the low elevations of Napa County. The merriment of the two create tobacco, cherry, and cassis aromas. On the palate, we get dried fruits, old world spice, integrated oak, notes of cedar and a lingering finish.
Sophisticated oak spices and ripe, bold flavors make a great combo in this full-bodied wine laced with lip-smacking, fine grained tannins. It has power with polish, revealing layers of black cherry, black currant, cocoa, ginger and graphite.
