Beautiful aromas of blackcurrants, ink and some black truffle. Medium-bodied, linear and tight with firm and silky tannins. Some spice and hazelnut in the aftertaste. Drink now or hold.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Olema is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 3% Petite Verdot, 2% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc aged 14 months in 50% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple in color, it gives up open-knit, expressive blackberry pie, plum preserves and cassis scents with wafts of unsmoked cigars and garrigue with a waft of charcuterie. Medium-bodied, the palate is packed with juicy black fruits, supported by soft tannins, finishing earthy. Impressive feat this vintage! 22,000 cases produced.
The 2017 Olema Cabernet Sauvignon opens with lovely aromas of blackberry, licorice whip, currant, vanilla and hints of cedar. On the palate, the medium- to full-bodied wine has a dense, juicy mouthfeel with blackberry compote and rhubarb pie notes along with tart cherry and toasted oak. A dark chocolatey texture carries through the strong finish with a pop of dark fruit and lingering oak spice.
