Made with renound Concannon clone 8 Cabernet grapes from a single vineyard on the western edge of Livermore Valley. Very easy drinking with floral berry nose and smooth blackberry flavors.

This is the lencioni single vineyard. 2013 was the first vintage. It was obviously the weaker sibling of all the single vineyards for that year. Kinda thin and simple. However, the winemaker adapted to the vineyard because this is a much stronger showing. It's the most western vineyard (livermore is east-west so west means cooler...think oak knoll equivalent). It is hillside. Again, a cabernet style that is going for acidity and elegance. Olive along with fruit. 90-91

Balanced, elegant 65 dollar cab. Juicy fruit, rustic blackberry, touch of licorice and olive, herb/spice.Not as lush as like we usually drink but it does have a richness. Drinking well now but im sure it will continue to get better in next few years.

Softest vineyard of the single vineyard series. His wines do well with at least 5-10 years on them so they can develop. 92+ for now. $65
