Inherit the Sheep
Region: Coombsville, Napa Valley, CA
A couple who purchases a vineyard and agree to "inherit the sheep" and raise them as their own are the kind of people we trust to make a perfect Cabernet Sauvignon...and we were right. Years later the sheep are going great and wine is spectacular.
It all starts with a beautifully dense, concentrated blackberry color which leads to juicy ripe black fruits and sweet vanilla bean aromas. The palate shows off perfect structure, with a little dustiness true to the region, and well integrated flavors of black currant, black cherry, black tea, violet along with a touch of cinnamon and tobacco. The finish reveals perfectly balanced tannins and lingering flavors of earthiness.
