2017 Blackwood Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon

2017 Blackwood Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon

This particular block of Cabernet, planted in 1984, provides us with a perfect balance of Old World complexity in aromas and flavors against the horsepower of a Red Mountain Cabernet. “This is a distinct wine in our lineup that shows a very well-established planting of Clone 8 Cabernet,” says Charlie. “They’re under control, but we’re definitely getting present, rustic tannins on this wine.” This structure is highlighted by notes of cola, dark chocolate, and intense black fruit. This vintage received extended barrel aging, a total of 28 months in oak for better tannin and oak integration, making it a bit more approachable upon release. Drink now through 2029.
