Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Layered aromas of blueberry and blackberry waft from the glass at its first swirl. The wine lingers on the palate with delightful purity of fruit. Flavors of plum, black currant and savory herb come alive from beginning to end. Full and expressive, Vaca Vista’s subtle tannins are beautifully integrated, offering a sleek and long finish.
Vineyard Notes
Vaca Vista Vineyard sits upon the valley floor in the Oak Knoll District, set against a scenic backdrop of the Vaca Mountains to the east. It is our debut Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in the appellation. The vineyard’s well-drained, gravelly soils and moderate climate provide even ripening, resulting in this structured and polished Cabernet Sauvignon.
