2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Kurt's Vineyard Reserve
Due to the cool climate and 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 2018 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 blackberry, elderberry and currant highlighted by hints of vanilla and toasty oak. The full-bodied palate delivers intense black fruit flavors woven together by soft, integrated tannins and a long lingering finish.
