Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District (2014)
Terra Valentine's Wurtele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has been sourced from the same part of the estate vineyard since 1996. At the top of the estate lies a north facing slope with shallow rocky volcanic soils. The vines on this part of the vineyard produce intensely concentrated fruit with deep color and structure. This 100% cabernet sauvignon is aged in 50% new French oak and has the structure to age gracefully for up to 20 years.
Ripe black fruits layered with boysenberry, bing cheery, plum, and mulberry with cedar, cocoa, anise, sage, and caramel notes rounding out the aromas. The rich and savory tannins are forward on the palate and extend into the bright and soft mid-palate. Long and rich fruit tannings layer the finish lingering with sweet caramel and vanilla notes.
