100% Cabernet from the Calaveras district of California’s Sierra Foothills AVA, the alpine growing season and limestone soils leave an indelible mark on the wines grown at Rorick Heritage Vineyard: beautiful aromatics, textural presence, and bright natural acidity are all hallmarks of the site. This bottle rivals the power and structure of Napa Valley’s own mountain Cabs while retaining heaps of immediate appeal in the blueberry, vanilla and dark chocolate flavors with fine grained tannins.
One of the best Calaveras wines in memory, this full-bodied Cab has great concentration and a firm but creamy texture. It offers plenty of immediate appeal and also bodes well for continued aging. Blueberry, vanilla and dark chocolate dominate the flavors while fine-grained tannins shape the mouthfeel. Best through 2026.
