We are excited to share the inaugural bottling of our estate Farrow Ranch cabernet sauvignon. Jesse Katz has a long history with Farrow Ranch beginning with one dry-farmed block of malbec back in 2010. Now the exquisite 75 acres of Farrow Ranch are part of our estate-owned portfolio. This robust cabernet sauvignon showcases an incredible hillside block.
“Entirely Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Farrow Ranch is inky in appearance and highly concentrated with layered aromas of pine sap, graphite, lavender oil, boysenberry liqueur, and menthol spice. Powerful on the palate, it delivers preserved blackberry, blue fruit, and sage oil, with sweet, refined tannins, and plushness and freshness underneath. A powerful style, it is worth all the decadence to hold at least a few years and drink 2026-2046.”99+ pts – Audrey Frick, Jeb Dunnuck
“The inaugural release of a single-vineyard Cabernet from Farrow Ranch, where winemaker Jesse Katz has sourced fruit for his iconic Devil Proof Malbec for more than a decade… Matured for 22 months in 85% new French oak, the Farrow Ranch has a deep ruby color and explosive aromas of Morello cherries, coffee beans, chocolate, laurel and violet. The full-bodied palate is ripe and powerful with a singular, powdery texture, seamless lift and very classy baking spice accents. Graphite-like mineral character drives the finish and suggests this will unfold in bottle over the next 5-7+ years.”97 pts – Erin Brooks, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
