2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Wooden Box Set


Tasting Notes

  • Aromas:  Blackberries, butterscotch, anise
  • Flavors:  Dark fruits, black cherry, spice
  • Profile:  Full-bodied with plenty of grip and length.  Terrific when decanted at release but justly rewards those who wait


Our 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is equally sourced from Broken Rock Vineyard, which lies just off Silverado Trail in the Atlas Peak AVA, and Fern Rock Vineyard in the Spring Mountain AVA. Both sites produce balanced, richly-structured wines.


  • Primary fermentation: Four-day cold soak, thirteen-day fermentation and fourteen-day extended maceration
  • Malolactic fermentation: 100% in barrel
  • Cooperage:  Twenty-two months in French oak
  • Alcohol:  14.5%

91 Points    Wine Enthusiast

“Intense garnet color, and rich aromas of earth and plum.  Blackberry and spice appear on the palate, which is balanced and complex yet seamless.  Delicious and long, with excellent finesse.”      Virginie Boone

91 Points    Wine Spectator

“Open and accessible, shows a gush of warmed cassis and plum compote flavors, laced with black licorice, supported by a graphite edge at the very end. Drink now through 2027.”   James Molesworth
