Director's Cut Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Notes

The last couple of vintages have seen a return to classic seasonal patterns, where a cold rainy winter prepares the vines for warm temperatures later. In 2018, precipitation carried on into spring, extending the growing period several weeks past the preceding year. There were also fewer heat spikes this season, allowing the fruit to ripen at a nice steady pace, and providing slightly larger yields of very well-balanced fruit.
