2017 Cabernet Sauvignon "Nebula"
Mellow aromas of purple flowers, boysenberry, dark earth and a slightly tangy black-plum-skin touch show on the nose of this bottling. Mouthcoating tannins frame the ripe blackberry-jam and cassis flavors, which are cut by sharp acidity. - MATT KETTMANN, of Wine Enthusiast
The 2017 vintage saw our drought end with a bang. The wet soils delayed budbreak to a normal time frame and produced such a healthy vineyard that we saw canopy sizes and cane lengths we hadn’t seen in years. The summer began relatively cool but was punctuated by two heat spikes that accelerated ripening and produced intense flavors. The resulting vintage shows the health of the vines with a combination of concentration and freshness, with bright acids framing powerful fruit.
