The Vineyardist Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

#VIN11CS3 | 750mL

From the Calistoga estate owned by Dirk Fulton and Becky Kukkola, 2011 marks the third vintage release with winemakerMark Herold and vineyard manager Jim Barbour combining theirexpertise to bring this incredible Estate Cab to market. The2011 Cabernet shows elegance yet depth thanks to its high elevation on Diamond Mountain. 2011 was a very cool year so many of the offerings are going to show more restraint. This2011 was one of the fuller-bodied Cabs of the 100 2011 Cabs in barrel I tasted in February. Signature notes of black currant and graphite fill the glass with rich tannin. - Kerrin Laz, Wine Director
