2019 Big Papa
Mature vines with deep, established roots struggle and naturally produce fewer clusters with smaller berries that ripen slowly. This combination of lower yields, smaller berries, and longer hang time creates wines that are richer, more concentrated, and complex. We found that using older, prominent vineyards brings an extra dimension of complexity and polish to this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
At first, the nose opens with nice and smooth leathery notes, lending toward herbal notes and subtle flavors of thyme and sage. This, now single grower wine, also has flavors of blackberry, coffee, and mocha. The finish is long and perfectly balanced with a subtle hint of cassis. Drink now or wait a while!
