|2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (PennyFarthing)|
Before it was taken from its cradle in France and raised in the New World as a muscular brute, Cabernet (in both its varietal manifestations) had aristocratic roots which obliged it to greatness by striving to inspire rather than to assault. Our winery’s notion of Cabernet Sauvignon aligns not with the fruitforward, fleshy style of Australia, but with the sinewy, deeply energetic offerings of Bordeaux.
|2006 Cabernet Sauvignon|
This perfect vintage allowed us to make another “real wine” with wonderfully density and stout but refined tannins. The structure and framework is firm, while the entry and mid-palate delight with a rich, generous base wine of soft round tannins and a sweet core of cassis.
Grapes picked at the peak of phenolic ripeness showcase the celebrated Peterson vineyard worked in harmony with the tiny berries of Tulucay Vineyard, which yield very low volumes of intensely tannic juice packed with blueberry aromas.
