Winery Notes:
TASTING NOTES:
Enticing aromas of cocoa, mocha, and juicy blackberries intrigue the senses and jump out of the glass with this beautiful, dark Cabernet Sauvignon. While flavors of black cherry, cassis, plum, and savory baking spices delight the palate, the soft, rich mouthfeel and supple tannins carry through to a lengthy finish. Bold and elegant, Double Lariat is accessible for any occasion and any connoisseur.

WINEMAKER NOTES:
Every year, our winemaker hand-selects vineyards from microclimates all over the Napa Valley with the goal of making the true representation of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon for that vintage. The 2016 vintage includes grapes from revered AVAs including Howell Mountain, Rutherford and Atlas Peak. This wine is both barrel-fermented and barrel-aged, which imparts freshness and integrated tannins.

FOOD PAIRING:
This fruit-forward wine pairs beautifully with meals that incorporate lamb, ribs or mushrooms.
