Winemaker's Notes

We are very proud of our debut Cabernet Sauvignon. It is the result of a lot of planning and many, many hours of labor intensive vineyard work. We knew from the very beginning that our high elevation vineyard had the potential to make a special Cabernet Sauvignon, so we invested in top clonal budwood material and an extensive (and expensive) trellising system. The vines are trained to a lyre system, and we shoot thin and drop crop by hand to ensure maximum ripeness.

The complex nose displays currants, plums, cedar, and espresso. The mouth features ripe plums, more currants and chocolate, with creamy oak and sweet tannins on the finish. It is showing well now, and has the structure to develop more complexity over the coming years.

Learn About Cedarville Vineyards

Cedarville Vineyard is located in a small Gold Rush era community called Fair Play, in south El Dorado County in the Sierra Foothills.

Production is very limited.
