2010 Stony Hill Cabernet Sauvignon

$60.00 Quantity:     

Mike Chelini's second vintage of Cabernet beautifully reflects Stony Hill's mountain Cabernet vineyard with its sun-drenched southwest exposure and deep red, loamy soils.  The resulting wine is rich in black cherry fruit and fragrant herbs, combined with that Stony Hill "from the earth" quality.  Nicely balanced between rich fruit flavors and bright acidity, the wine shows subtle tannins, a lively texture and long finish.  True to Mike's fruit-first and light-touch style of winemaking, the Cab has 13.5% alcohol and promises a long life to come.
