"If I drew a picture on my iPad or what a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon should be like, the 2016 Cuttings would be an excellent model. TASTING NOTES: This wine has oomph on the palate, and it delivers. Its aromas and flavors of ripe fruit, attractive oaky notes, and a bodied of lush textures make it an outstanding pairing partner with barbecue hoisin-accented baby back ribs."
"Deliciously smooth with flavors of blueberry, dark cherry, and cocoa. Aromas of fresh roasted coffee, black currant, vanilla bean, brown spice, and wild berries. Inspired by the age-old method of using cuttings from idyllic sites for the propagation of new vines, this Cabernet Sauvignon showcases some of our favorite hillside vineyards. Cuttings combines the deep, intense flavor of Cabernet Sauvignon with the structure and richnessof Petite Sirah and Syrah. A small amount of Zinfandel adds a nice layer of complexity and spiciness. 80 Cabernet Sauvignon; 20 Blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Zinfandel.-Winemakers Notes
