Vineyard Information: For our Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet, we exclusively used grapes from the Estate Pichon Vineyards, located on the slopes of Mount Umunhum, above Lexington Reservoir.
Tasting Characteristics: Our Dean’s List Cabernet is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, accompanied and enhanced with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a big splash of Petit Verdot. The nose is a celebration of sweet fruit, along with hints of licorice, caramel and casssis. The mouth bursts with Bing cherries, anise, blackberries and currants. The wine finishes with a subtle hint of pepper. Balanced with good tannins and plenty of acidity, this wine will reward with cellar aging. Best enjoyed now through 2023 and much, much longer
