2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Kurt's Vineyard
Due to its cool climate and the ocean influence, Monterey County is best known for its Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. Yet in the southern part of the county lies the San Lucas appellation, a gorgeous locale with rolling topography, complex soils and weather that is warm enough to ripen all of the red Bordeaux varieties. Killer Cab from Monterey County? Our 2016 Kurt’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is Exhibit A. Kurt Gollnick, our COO, chose a 10-acre plot to plant his favorite variety, a micro-site that is capable of growing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is dark and concentrated with aromas of blackberries, boysenberries and elderberries with notes of chocolate, hazelnuts, toasty oak and a hint of violet. The palate delivers rich, juicy black fruit flavors followed by soft, integrated tannins and a long lingering finish.
