2017 Hamel Family 'Nuns Canyon Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley

$159.95 $179.95

Notes of fresh blackberry and cassis overlay savory tones of lavender, sage and crushed rocks. A supple and silky attack on the palette is followed by dense, mouth-coating tannins. This wine is persistent and powerful through its energy and sheer magnitude all the way to a chalky, mineral finish.

Wine Enthusiast

An entirely varietal wine fermented in concrete, stainless steel and oak tanks, this is complex, structured and supremely earthy, with mineral traces throughout. Strawberry, cassis and vanilla provide a rich contrast to the cedar, sage and wisps of tobacco, the tannins powerfully present. Enjoy best from 2027 through 2037.
