2017 APERTURE SJ RANCH VINEYARD CABERNET SAUVIGNON


This small-production offering showcases a dark-fruit mix of wild berries and cassis on the palate, lifted by hints of fresh flowers on the nose. The fruit hails exclusively from SJ Ranch Vineyard, a 7.9-acre parcel at the top of Chalk Hill, directly adjacent to the legendary Verité vineyards on Thomas Road.

“The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon SJ Ranch Vineyard is a riper style than some of the other Cabernets in the Aperture lineup this year, made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a vibrant ruby-purple color and aromas of dark plums, fruitcake and baked berries accented by Chinese five spice, chocolate, graphite, dried herbs and floral nuances. The full-bodied palate is firmly framed and finely grainy, with good freshness and a very long finish.” 96 pts – Erin Brooks, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
