With elevations ranging from (1400 – 2050 ft), limestone subsoils, and extreme diurnal temperature swings, averaging 45 degrees, Adelaida produces wines with distinct expressions of their site. This classic Cabernet Sauvignon is full of intense, bold flavors and nuanced aromatics, resulting in a mouthwateringly juicy wine that punches well above its weight. Cacao nibs, freshly turned soil, blackcurrant compote, Adelaida rocks, and fine French oak barrels all live in harmony to create this lavish bouquet. Red and black fruit flavors of black currant, cherry, and premium chocolate abound in this decadently rich flavored wine that delivers a fine and velvety texture. Cabernet Sauvignon 90%, Cabernet Franc 10%. Aged in French oak barrels (15% new) for 20 months.
