From the Green Valley AVA in Susiun Valley
Surprisingly complex, the 2017 California Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon is seductively inky, opaque and blackish-purple in color. Ripe raspberry, plum, kalamata olive, and sweet tobacco combine with aromas of cassis, bay leaf, cacao, leather, dusty earth and black licorice - a delightful combination! On the palate, the aromatics are confirmed with flavors of juicy raspberry jam, earth, cigar box, and dried mint. The well-integrated tannins and mouth-watering finish leave you wanting more with each sip. The 2017 California Barrel Select Cab will complement grilled rib-eye steaks, juicy braised lamb shanks, and pasta with a rich bolognese sauce.
