Winemaker Notes

The Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is deep, purple-ruby in color with aromas of toffee, dried cranberry, and chocolate-covered raspberries with hints of soft hazelnut and baking spices. A juicy entry on the mouth delivers plush, fine tannins with a velvety texture. This approachable, medium-bodied cabernet has full, yet silky flavors of lush milk chocolate, strawberry, and raspberry crumble with graham cracker. A finale of round tannins leads to a dry, smooth finish. It plays nicely with California grass-fed beef burgers, balsamic lamb shank, or grilled beef short ribs.

Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 6% Merlot

Professional Ratings

  • 92

    This smooth, mouthfilling but not heavy wine is scented with black plums, black cherries and maple, followed by rich, ripe fruit flavors and a very polished texture. Light tannins add to an easy touch on the palate.

    COMMENTARY: The 2021 Banshee Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is stylish with excellent stay power on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of black fruits, licorice, blackcurrants, and oaky notes. Enjoy it with grilled Korean-style short ribs.

  • 91

    Notes of ripe blackberries and plum skins with sweet licorice, rose petals and pine wood. Full-bodied and a little tight with firm tannins, yet succulent and fruit-forward at the same time. Spicy and lingering finish. Better in a year or two.

Banshee, California
Banshee  Winery Image
In the relentless pursuit of wines with balance, elegance, and purity, they have developed relationships with some of the most storied vineyards in Sonoma County and beyond to craft Banshee. The main focus for Pinot Noir is on the cool, rugged, coastal areas of the far Western Sonoma Coast, Russian River Valley, Anderson Valley and Sonoma Mountain. Each vineyard has a unique combination of a specific influence, soil type, elevation, age and exposure but the common thread is that it allows the pursuit of Pinot that achieves power without weight. They allow the grapes to express a certain transparency. They highlight a wide range of flavors other than just fruit. Banshee Wines started in 2009 at a bar in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco. With money borrowed from their friends and family, Banshee Wines was launched with eight barrels of coveted Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. The Banshee belief is that the best wines from California are yet to be made...and they plan on producing some of them. They strive to makes wines with the complexity and deliciousness of those found at the very top of the quality and price scale, but at a price that is affordable for everyone and not just the uber-wealthy. The Banshee Tasting Room opened in August of 2013 in downtown Healdsburg, a refreshing and relaxed take on your typical tasting room. It’s more like hanging out at their house and sharing some wine with family, rather than bellying up to an ever-crowed tasting bar. Today the Banshee Wines mission remains the same as it was in those early days – to craft distinctive wines that over-deliver in every possible way.

While Sonoma County is acclaimed—and rightfully so—for its Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, and Zinfandels, it also produces exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. Of the region’s 18 American Viticultural Areas, only a handful produce top-notch Cabernet Sauvignon. These appellations include Alexander Valley, Knights Valley, Sonoma Valley and Dry Creek Valley. Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignons made in these appellations can offer a complex array of aromas and flavors. Fruit notes such as blackberry, blackcurrant, cassis, black cherry and raspberry often are accompanied by hints of graphite, dusty earth, cigar box, toast and vanilla. The varietal has a rich history in Sonoma, and some of these Cabernet Sauvignons and Cabernet-based blends rival the best from Napa Valley.
