2017 | North Coast
The backbone of this wine comes from Cabernet Sauvignon grown on Pauli Ranch located in Mendocino county. This cooler climate region gives Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with depth, structure, dark fruit flavor and subtle, complex herb notes. In addition to Mendocino, perfectly ripened fruit from Napa Valley, Lake County and Alexander Valley compliments the final blend. These additional North Coast appellations bring bright fruit flavors, lush round tannins and good structure throughout.
The 2017 Aquinas Cabernet Sauvignon offers up aromas of wild fruit, briar patch, plum and blackcurrant. The palate opens to a juicy, lush, medium-bodied mouthfeel where the aromas ring true with bright fruit character and crushed herb, pencil shavings and spice flavors. The wine is a cooler climate style; elegant with a rich texture and integrated, smooth tannins. With 12 months of aging in primarily American oak and some French oak, the Cabernet Sauvignon is well-balanced with good acidity and a lingering, flavorful finish.
