2012 Terra a Lago Cabernet Sauvignon
%price_bottle% / Bottle
Val Peline’s Terra A Lago vineyard sits at the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains in Alexander Valley on some beautiful rolling hills. The fruit for our Terra a Lago Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested from my favorite section, the #4 Block, due to its rich concentration of tannins and flavors. The aroma opens with notes of blackberries and vanilla that leads to deep flavors of black cherries with just a hint of bay. This is a highly structured wine with plush velvety tannins and a long lingering finish. The Terra A Lago will age nicely for 10+ years, however due to the abundant soft tannins can be enjoyed in earlier years as well.
This is a big Cab that deserves a big steak! Nothing says love like a Porterhouse.
