Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 Mountain Ranch
This wine is made from the elegantly flavorful Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in the red volcanic soil of our Mountain Ranch, located at the top of Bradford Mountain.
Dry Creek Valley
Average brix: 26.1
Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels (60% new). Barrels were individually selected for the optimum expression of flavor and structure for this blend.
The grapes were crushed into small fermenters. After cold-soaking for three days to extract rich color, the must fermented on the skins for three weeks to obtain a richly extracted wine.
Dark Ruby in color with aromas and richly textured layers for dark plum, black currant, and black cherry.
Our Mountain Ranch vineyard is at the very top of Bradford Mountain. This vineyard’s volcanic red soils combine with the mountain-top micro-climate to yield especially elegant wines with richly structured fruit flavors. For this wine, our Mountain Ranch Clone 8 and clone 6 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with small amounts of our Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
Food Pairing Notes
With its bold flavor, this Cabernet demands to be served with a good meal. This "Cab" goes well with wild fowl, red cabbage, aged cheeses, truffles, honey-roasted carrots or grilled red meat - especially lamb or well-marbled beef.
