Winemaker Notes

Aquinas Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the best appellations in California’s North Coast. The North Coast AVA (American Viticultural Area) is one of California's premier wine-growing regions, covering more than three million acres in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Lake counties, as well as parts of Marin and Solano. Bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and San Pablo Bay to the south, the area is composed of rugged coastal ranges, volcanic mountains, gentle rolling hills, deep valleys and wide alluvial plains. With tremendous diversity in soil types and microclimates, the North Coast produces grapes that are deeply influenced by terroir, infusing the wines with character and a unique sense of place that can't be found anywhere else in the world.

Tasting Notes

The 2016 Aquinas Cabernet Sauvignon delights with aromas crushed currants, blackberry jam and fresh violet petals. On the palate, decadent toasted oak notes from the blend of American and French Oak aging regimen blend with black cherry and sweetened cranberry. A fruit-forward, full-bodied and delightfully structured Cabernet Sauvignon.
