Even better, the 100% varietal 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a deep purple color as well as full-bodied aromas and flavors of blackcurrants, unsmoked tobacco, chocolate, and earth.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (100%) comes from the Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper vineyard in Oakville. It aged in 100% French Darnajou, Taransaud and Sylvain oak for 22 months. Deep purple-black colored, it comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant black berry preserves, baked plums and candied violets with touches of chocolate mint, smoked meats and sautéed herbs. Full-bodied, rich and finely grained, it has lovely freshness and loads of savory layers on the finish. 500 cases produced.
