2018 Cabernet - Summit Lake Vineyards (4 of 4)

2018 Summit Lake Vineyards "Emily Kestrel" Cabernet Sauvignon

The foundation for this wine comes from the Cabernet vines that Bob first planted on the property in 1973.  Old, gnarled and well established, these vines produce less and less fruit each year, but what they produce is beautiful, complex and a stunning example of the terroir that Howell Mountain is famous for.  Floral and spicy with supple tannins and a long finish.
