A true representation of hillside Cabernet, the Sentall 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the volcanic soils of the Red Hills AVA in Lake County. This young and exciting appellation lies above the North Coast Magma Pocket offering obsidian rich soils at ideal elevation, with ample fresh air and sunlight. A high level of UV exposure triggers thicker grape skin growth which makes for intense and tannic wines. The initial aromatics are spicy, strong, and herbal in nature with notes of dark cherry, over-ripe raspberry, and hints of cedar. Red plum, cherry, and a touch of cranberry make up the core of the body. Big, aggressive tannin and acid work in tandem to extend the finish and leave delicious notes of black tea, dark chocolate, and plum lingering on the palate.
