2009 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Most of our cabernet sauvignon from this vineyard goes to Pine Ridge Winery, but we keep back a select amount of fruit for a limited bottling of 100% estate grown, single vineyard LOBO Cabernet. This is our second vintage made by Victoria Coleman.
The wine is custom crushed at a facility just south of St. Helena. The fruit is hand-picked, of course, gently pressed and then aged for 18 months in 75% new French oak barrels from Baron, Taransaud, and Seguin Moreau.
The wine has a dark ruby hue, with a bouquet of blueberries, blackberries and violets. The dark fruit flavors provide a complex mouthfeel, and a lingering finish of brioche and cocoa.
While 100% cabernet sauvignon, the wine has a balance and complexity that eludes many blends. Drink now through 2016.
