Hook & Ladder Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Los Amigos Ranch, Chalk Hill, Sonoma County, California

“halk Hill is an appellation with, generally, warmer days than in the rest of the Russian River Valley, with a variety of volcanic and alluvial soils across the western foothills of the Mayacamas range, rising 200 to 300 feet in elevation. Here, at our Los Amigos Ranch, just South of Healdsburg, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot develop deep, bold flavors. Our single vineyard Cabernet is aged for up to 18 months in a combination of European and American oak. The wine contains a small amount (3%) of Merlot, also from our Los Amigos ranch, to enhance the silky texture of this exquisite Cabernet.
