It is from favored mountain sites that the best wines originate. The Cabernet Sauvignon selection from our Bradford Mountain Estate vineyard was propagated from cuttings we took from Mount Eden Vineyards in the 1980's. This clone was brought to California over 100 years before., with vines taken from Chateaux Margaux. This is a wine that will give an extra reward to those who wish to cellar it. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
This wine offers quintessential Bradford Mountain Cab characteristics--concentrated ripe cherry, cassis, spicy oak and hints of forest floor, along with the ever-present, yet subtle, mineral essence. The alluring aromas showcase these classic features, drawing you into the wine. A smooth mouthfeel and spicy texture reveal beams of cedar, cocoa and minerality threading through the wine, weaving around the luscious fruit. Youthful tannins and smoky vanillin oak add complexity and interest on the palate.
