2020 APERTURE CABERNET SAUVIGNON – SOLD OUT


Bottle of Aperture Cellars 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon

Focusing first on the Cabernet fruit from our mineral-rich, volcanic soil sites nestled on the hillside slopes in the Alexander Valley. This vintage’s blend is uniquely crafted with delicate inclusions of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and a small hint of Merlot and Petit Verdot showcasing intense black fruits enriched with lengthy velvety tannins.
Available in 750ml bottles

A note on the 2020 vintage from our Winemaker and Founder, Jesse Katz



“Blended with 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec, 1% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot and matured for 18 months in 55% new French oak. Deep ruby-purple, it has alluring scents of Morello cherries and blueberries accented by wafts of laurel leaves, allspice and cocoa. Medium-bodied and firm yet velvety, it’s ripe yet more restrained than previous vintages, offering classy oak spice and surprising drinkability.”
