2016 Home Ranch Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Valley

2016 Home Ranch Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Valley

Planted by Sojourn proprietor Craig Haserot in 2002, the Home Ranch Vineyard is tucked away in the southwest corner of Sonoma Valley, where it is warm enough to fully ripen Cabernet Sauvignon. Built on a core of clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon, the early bud break and lack of heat spikes in 2016 allowed the grapes to mature at an optimal pace. This finished wine is remarkable, with explosive aromas that pop out of the glass with blueberry fruit and hints of cassis and mocha. The texture is big and lush with silky tannins and a lingering finish. It is a superb value at $59!
