Tasting Notes
This Cabernet Sauvignon validates the extraordinary promise of southern Monterey County Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a big, dark, fruit-infused wine packed with blackberries, raspberries and cassis. On the palate, it is substantial and luscious with layers of ripe fruit supported by well-integrated tannins. Powerful, yet silky smooth, our Cabernet Sauvignon is the ideal match for grilled meats or hearty stews.

The District 7 Cabernet Sauvignon combines fruit from two estate vineyards in southern Monterey County. The Hames Valley Vineyard is located near the border of San Luis Obispo County. Sheltered from the afternoon winds, it possesses the largest diurnal temperature swings in the county. The combination of warm days, crisp nights and an incredibly long growing season makes this an ideal locale for big, tannic reds. Their San Lucas Vineyard is in the San Lucas AVA. (What are the odds of that?) This is Monterey County’s climatic tipping point for Bordeaux red varieties with days that are warm and sunny and nights that are cold and calm.

The growing season was picture perfect. It featured cool mornings, warm afternoons and temperate nights with no late frosts, little rain and few severe heat spikes. The fruit achieved full physiological maturity with balanced acidity and moderate sugar levels.

The grapes were harvested in the early morning hours based on ripeness, acidity, pH and seed color. In the winery, the fruit was sorted, crushed and fermented in small lots. Gentle handling and minimal intervention preserved the integrity of the variety and the character of the individual sites.
