Sean Minor Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, North Coast, Californa

2018 vintage – 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petite Verdot. Grapes from sites throughout the North Coast were harvested at optimal maturity, then de-stemmed and gently crushed into open-top stainless steel fermenters, at warm temperatures, to fully extract color and flavor. The fermented wine then was racked to a combination of French and American oak for aging of which 20% was new. During the aging process the wine lots were tasted throughout and blended back together just before bottling. “Our North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon is ruby in color and displays aromas of raspberry, cassis and cigar box. Once in your mouth, the wine’s silky raspberry, plum and black currant flavors integrate with a combination of oak and tannin nuances, creating a well-balanced, rich and full-bodied wine.”
