2021 APERTURE CABERNET SAUVIGNON


Bottle of Aperture Cellars 2021 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 Petit Verdot and Merlot, and a small hint of Malbec and Cabernet Franc showcasing intense black fruits enriched with lengthy velvety tannins.
Available in 750ml and 1.5L bottles

”Coming from Aperture’s estate vineyard in Healdsburg, California and their newest vineyard acquisition, Farrow Ranch in Alexander Valley, plus some of the original single vineyards in the Aperture program like Oliver Ranch. It has vibrant, layered aromas of blueberry compote, lavender, aniseed, milk chocolate and nutmeg with undertones of cast iron and tobacco leaves. The medium-bodied palate is elegantly styled, pairing deep flavors with a weightless feel due to its bright acidity and velvety tannins. It has a long, latent finish and deserves 3-5 years in bottle.”
