2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
Spring Mountain District
This Cabernet is from a “rock star” vineyard on Spring Mountain that internationally known winemaker Joel Aiken has worked with for over 20 years. The wine has incredible fruit with a unique perfume from Cabernet clone 191—grown on cool Spring Mountain.
This wine has been aged in a new french oak barrel in caves since being drained and pressed.
