Red Hills Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious Cabernet.

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Beautiful nose of wildflowers, blueberries, blackberries, light cedar, licorice, spices, black pepper, chocolates, dark coffee and earth.

Full bodied smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, blueberries, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco, chocolates, light earth and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Lake County in California. Drinking very nicely now, with nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.

Good by itself as a sipping wine, and good with food. Will be nice to revisit this in a few years, and see how it evolves.

Good right out of the bottle, but so much better after 2 hours of airtime, when it becomes so aromatic. Loved smelling on it for a long while.

Grapes are grown on rocky red volcanic soil, at elevation of 2,200 feet. A blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit verdot. Aged in (80% new) French Oak barrels. 1800 cases produced.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$75.

Great blend! High tannins and a lot of body. I got a lot of plum and black cherry. Cooper’s Hawk does it again! — 16 days ago

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and smooth

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cherries, wood, spices, vanilla, tobacco, peppercorn, espresso, chocolates, light earth and herbs.

Medium on the finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.

This is a very tasty Petite Sirah from Lake County. A nice sipping wine that doesn't need food at all. Easy drinking with nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime. I gave it a couple of hours in a decanter.

This Single Vineyard is tasty, spicy and interesting. Really enjoyed the nose here.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.

100% Petite Sirah grapes where grown at 2,200 feet of elevation. Aged in (40% new) French Oak barrels. A small production of only 150 cases.
