2014 Mohrhardt Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

2014 Mohrhardt Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

We are thrilled to announce a new varietal to our wine program and release a hidden treasure. . .our inaugural vintage of cool-climate Cabernet Sauvignon! This unique vineyard site is located in the mountains of West Sonoma Coast, a region known specifically for its incredible Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards. We stumbled upon a small vineyard planted to Cabernet Sauvignon decades ago, perched high on the ridge in a warm sunny pocket of hillside, and sitting just 5-miles from the Pacific Ocean. Being one of the few sites of Cabernet plantings amongst a region reigning in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines, we couldn't resist the opportunity to take a chance to tend the vineyard and make wine from this little gem. 
Reminiscent of the cool climate, Old World wines of Bordeaux where grapes do not reach full ripeness, this wine sings to the softer, more delicate side of Cabernet. Mohrhardt Ridge Vineyard is a prime location enjoying cool afternoon ocean breezes while basking in a warm sunny location, similar to Mediterranean climate enjoyed in Bordeaux and aiding the vines to enjoy a extended maturation on the vine. With the extended hangtime for the grapes we are afforded rich, elegant tannin development and able to retain fresh, bright acid levels because of the cooler climate. The resulting wines is a Cabernet of feminine grace, silky tannins, boundless aromatics,with structured layers of complexity and depth. The wine leads with aromoas of cocoa nibs, violets, and hints of green olive, brined walnuts, and eucalyptus.


Wine Notes:
 Bay laurel, graphite, green olive, licorice
