2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Artist Wine

Vineyard description : Mendocino County is one of California’s premier cool-climate AVAs. North of Sonoma County at the top of California lie alluvial soils that extend up the side of the Mayacamas mountain range. In morning, much of the vineyard land is covered in a cool fog from the Pacific Ocean.

Wine Description : Ruby-garnet colored wine with great spice and red fruit aroma like currant buds. Medium bodied with soft acidity the palate shows caramel, spice, and cherry. Finish presents medium plus tannins, poised for great ageability

Food Pairing : Beef Carpaccio, raw fatty tuna, smoked salmon.
