The Mettler family heritage honors 100 years and five generations of farming in Lodi with the release of this exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. The size of the crop, the time spent on the vine, and the many months aged in French oak barrels all reflect the care our family took to fully express the potential of these very small and unique portions of our vineyards.
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon shows off a deep, inky, crimson color in the glass. It opens with inviting aromas of dark cherry, cola, cedar, mineral and earth. The graceful mingling of cherry, cranberry and sweet oak flavors have a freshness of character and a whisper of vanilla. On the palate, the rich mouthfeel is moderated by juicy acidity, and the long finish is reminiscent of a fine Bordeaux. This elegant and poised Cabernet is accessible now, and its structure and complexity will see it through many years of aging
Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petite Sirah
