The Estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our vineyards in Alexander Valley and McDowell Valley. The 2017 year was early and relatively small, so we brought in our Bordeaux varietals earlier than usual, luckily missing the devastating October res. Harvested in late September and early October and fermented for three weeks at temperatures in the 70s, these grapes yielded deep, intense wine that conveys a taut freshness with great aromatic purity. Balanced between modern California and Old World, this wine is dense with buckets of black currant and cherry that are tempered with a dusty herbaceous quality.

The 2017 Armé is another gorgeous wine in this range from Marietta. Inky dark blue and purplish fruit, lavender, menthol and spice all grace this sumptuous racy and inky wine with great balance. The 2017 is a super value in California Cabernet Sauvignon. Wow.

Made from 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% each of Merlot and Malbec, and 4% Petit Verdot, aged 20 months in neutral oak, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Arme comes from sites in Northern California and is another value-priced wine in the lineup that has loads to love. Spiced currants, plums, licorice, toasted spice, and cedary notes all emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, mouthfilling, and loaded with fruit. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years.
