Tasting Notes

Our first top tier Cabernet Sauvignon! Very few know this, but we’ve had our hand in the Cab game for some time as consultant winemakers and we’ve been big fans of it for far longer. Our search for an enticing vineyard came to fruition in 2018 and dovetailed with an outstanding vintage. Sometimes the universe abides! Now, after four long years of ageing in barrel and bottle, we’re proud to present our first Autumn Moon Cabernet exclusively to you.

Sourced from a great plot of land just north of Calistoga, this is classic northern Sonoma Cab; gracefully balanced with a focused, juicy core of red fruit (cassis, cherry, raspberry) framed in just the right amount of French oak and accented with graphite and warm spices. Not nearly as bombastic as the dominant trend of the last two decades, Autumn Moon offers generous flavor, intensity and elegance. Ripe (not jammy) and wrapped in fine tannins, this wine is just beginning to strut its stuff.

Despite the extra bottle age before release, we suggest decanting to allow it to unfold even further. It will easily offer more than decade + of evolution if you have the patience and cellar space.
