2017 RABBLE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
LABEL STORY: These are our single varietal wines; uncorrupted and pure. The Rabble labels are renditions of historical wood block prints from the Nuremberg Chronicle (late 1400’s), textured and tactile, depicting nature’s wrath. Nature is ruthless when it goes ignored. This label illustrates Mount Vesuvius Erupting over Pompeii.
VINEYARD: Mossfire Ranch
Planted in 1996 on steep hillsides and a rolling valley at the confluence of sun, snow and sea. The vineyard weathers 40° diurnal shifts. The extremity of the climate creates fruit of uncommon concentration and uniform ripeness.
WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES:
Ripe red fruits of plum, cherry and black berry burst from the glass. The purity of fruit is enhanced by nuanced notes of cocoa, cola, vanilla with a hint of cedar. The opulent and lush flavors of red fruit glide across the palate and is balanced out with subtle oak flavors and chewy tannins that linger on the finish.
