SONOMA COUNTY

Wedding Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon

First planted to Martha's Vineyard clone Cabernet in 1973, the Wedding Vineyard covers eleven gently sloping acres (up to 15 degrees, oriented south-west) on our Mountain Estate at an elevation of 1,200 feet. Approximately nine acres were replanted in 2002 under the careful guidance of David Abreu: seven blocks of Cabernet (clone 337 and Martha's Vineyard clone), one block of Petit Verdot (clone 400) and one block of Cabernet Franc (clone 327).

Tasting Notes

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Wedding Vineyard is a real knockout. Dark, powerful and somber in its personality, the 2013 presents intense black-fleshed fruit, graphite, smoke and licorice. There is more than enough depth to fill out the wine's ample, broad-shouldered frame. This powerful, virile mountain Cabernet is going to need a few years to fully come together, but it is impressive.
