2018 Clone 4 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District
Our Clone 4 Vineyard, on the northern edge of the Chimney Rock estate, is a fine example of this type of viticultural adventure. These mature vines consistently produce low yields and remarkably small berries, and our vineyard crew makes multiple passes through each row to optimize the sun exposure and ripening potential. The resulting wine is both intense and lushly textured, and provides a truly transparent view of the 2018 vintage at this specific location. We proudly hold no secrets here, and welcome you to jump on the high-wire and enjoy the results.
COLOR: Deep purple inky red
AROMA: This Cabernet has an intriguing layered aromatic profile with aromas of black currant, rose petal, mint toffee and a hint of black tea.
FLAVOR: On the palate this is a full bodied and bold wine with a viscous mid-palate and a long smooth finish.
