This intensely inky-colored Cabernet Sauvignon wine is grown in the well-drained, stoney and iron-rich soils of the Weir Family Vineyard along the Silverado Trail, one mile south of the famed Stags' Leap appellation and ten yards from the Oak Knoll District, the Valley's newest sub-appellation. The rich, spicy nose of baker's chocolate and black cherry compliments its brooding black licorice, black cherry and cranberry on the palate. The addition of 12% Cabernet Franc enhances the complexity of the wine, as well as adding to Hagafen's trademark robust and silky mid-palate.
Aged for 19 months in small French and American oak cooperage, this Cabernet Sauvignon will flourish with bottle age.
Wow, what a great vineyard and wine. Visited 3 times now and will definitely be back. Highly recommend!
