Tasting Notes:

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.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
When considering food with Cabernet Sauvignon, think body style when matching dishes. Big and hearty dishes pair very well with bold Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Enjoy with lamb, beef, pork, sausage, grilled meats, stews and game. Dishes with black olives, black pepper, pungent herbs and mushrooms will also work well. Hard cheeses and charcuterie make a perfect accompaniment to start off the night! Have a favorite pairing? Share with us on Instagram.

About the Winery
Inherit the Sheep The story of Inherit the Sheep began at the Robert Mondavi Winery in Napa Valley, where Clay Gregory first met Tersilla in 1990. With a mutual love for wine and wine country, the married couple decided to explore a place that offered enough land where they could plant a small vineyard. In 2000, their dream became reality when they discovered the Inherit the Sheep property, located in the Coombsville AVA of Napa Valley. Learn more
