Blackcurrant and cedar wood are the traditional character of Cabernet Sauvignon. As in Bordeaux, we keep our yields low. On the rolling hills of Fairplay, with its coarse sandy loam the grapes like it to the point of not being spoiled. To fully enjoy this young wine give it time to open up in the glass, or better yet decant and let stand for a half-hour. Dark cherries, plum, and licorice are some of the flavors this well structured wine will deliver to the palate. The Cabernet Sauvignon delivers rich fruits and balanced tannins. This high altitude (2300 feet elevation) Cabernet Sauvignon will deliver a truly wonderful experience, as years pass will only get better yielding deeper and richer layers of complexity.
