The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from separate blocks of vines planted in 1996, 1997, and 1999, all from the Desert Wind Vineyard. Each block was fermented separately in stainless steel, with an average of 9 days of skin contact. Portions of each lot were blended together to craft a bold, yet fruity and complexing wine. Syrah, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and a touch of Tempranillo were blended to further deepen the color and structure of the wine. The wine was aged for 17-18 months, with some French oak to complement the flavors and aromas. The wine expresses flavors of black currrants, nutmeg, and blackberry
