Winery Notes:
TASTING NOTES:
This Cabernet Sauvignon, made from the grapes grown on our property, is wonderfully aromatic, combining as it does a touch of cassis with hints of blackberry and crushed violets. There’s a strong mineral component, and we can detect an element of pencil lead and cedar. Although it’s rich, there is an endearing softness to it; its flavors are more lush than lean. It finishes with a reminder that this is serious Cabernet Sauvignon.

I liked it so much when we bottled it that I asked Tadeo to prepare 20 cases in magnums. I will look forward to tapping into them, as soon as well-made Cabernet Sauvignon like this allows. That’s the real reward for a winery owner -- enjoying a wine while reminiscing about what went into producing it. Our 2013 Neyers Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon will be a wonderful companion over the next two decades or more.
