Terra A Lago

Cabernet Sauvignon

Alexander Valley 2011 Mighty Goode Cab

Description

Our Terra a Lago Cab packs a whopper of a punch. This vineyard, at the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains in Alexander Valley, consistently gives us the most intense Cabernet Sauvignon in our line-up. The aromas and flavors are dominated by dense blackberry, with notes of bay and thyme. Aging 18 months in French oak softens the wine’s muscular tannins and adds sweet oak and vanilla accents. Terra a Lago holds its own against anything hearty. A Porterhouse steak is a perfect pairing.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2011 Vintage fruit from Val Peline’s vineyard, at the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains in Alexander Valley, gave us some wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon this year. The 2011 vintage was long and cool, like none we had ever seen, and it promoted an incredible amount of hang time without the more common higher sugar levels in the fruit. The resulting wine is a more atypical Cabernet of elegance and finesse. I love the balance of savory elements intermingled with the fruit. Look for notes of sage, lingberry and thyme that introduce some great minerality that then pushes you to a satisfying finish full of blackberry and vanilla. This is an Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that defines elegance and finesse.
