Vineyard Notes

Our Patriot Cabernet comes exclusively from our estate property.  2013 was a great vintage for us as we dropped fruit and held off irrigation for as long as possible.  This wine is deeply concentrated and will age for 10+ years.  

Our 2013 Patriot Cabernet has a dark garnet color and opens with dark cherry, cassis, tobacco and vanilla bean.  This smokey, toasty wine takes a moment to open and then the complexities shine bright.  Enjoy dark chocolate, jammy fruit, and a hint of earth.  This wine finishes with moderate tannins and has a butterschotch flavor that lingers.  This wine is aged in 100% new American oak from Missouri for about 28 months.  

Our Patriot wine sells out quickly each year and is our Wine For A Cause!  This wine is a tribute to our officers both locally and globally, we salute and thank the men and women who put their lives on the line everyday.
