Lucas and Lewellen Valley View Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Ynez Valley|
|Brand||Lucas and Lewellen|
From Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec varieties, all grown on our estate vineyards, we carefully blend a core of Cabernet Sauvignon with small percentages of the other varieties. The result is a distinctive and refined wine with layers of blackberry and fig jam notes with silky tannins and a long finish.
There is a strong mineral kick to the nose of this bottling, with aromas of wet slate and loam that lead into purple flowers and blackberry juice. The palate is lively with energy, dusted by dried herbs and lifted with fresh blackberries, all clinging to tense tannins and strong acidity.
Friendly, with a strong dose of raspberry and cherry preserve flavors running along, laced with red licorice and rooibos tea accents. Drink now.
