Winemaker Kristen Belair picked the perfect time to harvest in 2017, capturing beautifully ripe fruit from this St. Helena vineyard. Vibrant cassis, blackberries and mulberries build a perfume backed by savory, earthy notes. The full-bodied palate has firm, fine-grained tannins and a lasting energy on the finish. There’s a black cherry richness that lingers like a memory of summer and sharing a bowl of warm, juicy cherries in the sun. It was delicious the day it arrived and time is only adding to its appeal.
This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Bartolucci vineyard on Dean York Lane in St. Helena. Deep purple-black colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Bartolucci Vineyard offers vibrant cassis, blackberries and mulberries scents with hints of olives, bay leaves and tilled soil. The palate is full-bodied, firm and fine-grained with background freshness and plenty of energy in the finish. Nice!
