In the 2021 Sonoma County Cabernet we find a wonderful package of dense aromas. Wild berries, cocoa dust, dried herbs and a hint of new oak begin to sing after 15 minutes in the glass. These aromas move to the flavors and add brandied cherries into the mix, but what really stands out is the fine grainy richness and depth that contribute to a mouth-filling Cab with tremendous length. Quite pleasing when young, but will unfold into a classic beauty when it reaches its stride in a couple years in the bottle.
