Wine Makers Notes

This Cab hails from Ron Siegemund’s “aCURE eSTATE” Vineyard, located in the hills at the western end of Alexander Valley, an area that enjoys long, sunny days and cool nights, ideal for properly ripening Cabernet Sauvignon. The soil is composed of a sandy, gravelly loam, and the vines tend to be very small. De Novo’s two-acre block provides fully mature, densely concentrated fruit. The vineyard and winery are powered by large pivoting solar photovoltaic panels, making the vineyard operations approximately 50% carbon-neutral.

Tasting Notes

Enticing aromas of dark, spicy ripe berries and plum lift to the nose. Balanced flavors of blackberry and pomegranate fill the mouth, followed by a moderate pepper highlight. Tannins are present but light. Bright and refreshing from beginning to end.
