Winemaker's Notes

The Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon is a distinctive wine with beautiful balance and solid, bright structure. Inviting, elegant aromas of blackberry, Bing cherry, baking spices (nutmeg, clove and allspice), pipe tobacco and cedar delight the nose. The mouthfeel is lusciously rich and loaded with flavors of blackberry and spice. These flavors linger on through the long, delicious finish. Due to its unique style, this wine will maintain interest and liveliness for years to come.

Enjoy our Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon alongside roast beef with sautéed mushrooms and garlic mashed potatoes or roasted rack of lamb.
