2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Pasatiempo VineyardSonoma Mountain 80% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Malbec6% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot
We like the mountain Cabernet vineyards best.Their high mineral content rocky soil, low nutrients, and abundant sun grow the best Cabernet. Pasatiempo is high on Sonoma Mountain on the southwest side of the valley. It gets some updraft from Bennett Valley, which moderates the temperatureto give it really long hang times;it is often the last vineyard picked.
This Meritage style blend, assembled by taste, accentuates the Cabernet by reaching every part of your palate. We barrel aged it in our cave for 30 months. We made 350 cases.
It is rich, very complex and well balanced, in the Sonoma style.
