Shannon Ridge Shannon Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
This is an intense and full bodied wine from our top vineyard locations. The Red Hills AVA and volcanic soils provide ripe red fruits, bright cherry, anise, dark chocolate and soft tannins to the blend. This balances with Cabernet from the High Valley AVA; a cooler location, higher in elevation and more loam soils. This terroir adds cassis, fresh herb, and cedar notes with a structured finish. The combination of these two Cabernet Sauvignon lots showcase the breadth of terroir in Lake County and our skills as farmers and vintners. Allow time for this wine to open.
