“The 2016 Meyer Cabernet Sauvignon has a rich, dark color that embodies the characteristics of a round and ripe, young Cabernet. The nose has aromas of sweet chocolate, black berry, and elements of sweet pipe tobacco, cigar, and cedar. With pretty vanilla oak and some licorice notes, the palate has an exotic, expanding finish”.
The lots for Meyer Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon are kept separate throughout winemaking to retain individual block and varietal characters. Small capacity fermentation tanks, carefully timed pump-overs and punch-downs, a mix of native and cultured yeasts, the finest French cooperage and extended aging result in a wine noted for its deep flavor and velvety tannins.
