Winemaker Dennis Hill’s deep knowledge of the best California Cabernet Sauvignon climates, soil types and vineyards, coupled with long-term relationships with premiere growers, allow sourcing for the finest grapes to craft the ultimate Cannonball flavor profile. Perfect California sunshine with pleasant cool evenings helped preserve color and acidity in the fruit. This vintage was aged 14-20 months in oak: 45% new, 80% French Medium Plus Toast, 20% American Medium Toast. The 2017 Cannonball Cabernet Sauvignon is dark crimson in color and has ripe plum, boysenberry, and red spice aromas. The taste is of red currant fruit with sweet oak, fresh cherry and berry flavors. The mouthfeel starts with a substantial body and has just enough texture and acidity to leave a long and flavorful finish.
