Star Lane Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
This may be the most fruit forward and open Cabernet Sauvignon at Star Lane Vineyard since 2012. The wine shows the exposure to a warmer ripening season with bright red fruits a bit more forward than the usual blueberry notes of previous vintages. All of this is achieved without compromising the “Star Lane-ness,” cool coastal sage notes that add complexity. Texture is sneaky: initial softness gives way to ample (but not overwhelming) tannin on the 2nd and 3rd sip.
Grape Composition: Cabernet Franc (5%), Petite Verdot (5%), Merlot (4%), and Malbec (1%)
