Tasting Notes

Lava Cap’s Cabernet Sauvignon has long been recognized for producing a wine with defined structure and vibrant fruit character. The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon holds true to this, demonstrating rich spice and cedar notes on the nose, followed by notes of wild blackberry and cassis. On the palate flavors of dark fruits mingle with hints of allspice and clove. Finishes amazingly complex and smooth.

Vineyard Notes

The grapes for this wine are predominately sourced from the oldest vines on our Estate property, planted on a gentle North East facing slope on loose decomposed volcanic rocks at 2,700ft nearly 40 years ago. These old head trained vines are rarely irrigated, and are the last grapes we harvest every year. The remainder of the grapes are grown across the American River, on granite soil at a similar elevation, around 2400 ft, on granitic soil.

Winemaker Notes

After primary and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel, the wine was racked to new and used 100% French barrels. After 20 months of aging without racking, the wine was blended and bottled.
