Relative to the Grand Valley offering, the Cliffside Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a more savory, spice-driven wine. With plenty of red fruit character on the nose and palate, the wine also displays leather and tobacco notes which we highlight by pairing quality French oak.
VARIETAL COMPOSITION: 100% CABERNET SAUVIGNON from our Cliffside Vineyard
18 months in 45% new French oak barrels
Having access to two clones to make a single vineyard wine serves as an advantage when it comes to winemaking. While the clone 337 was very a big wine with layers of fruit and spice it was missing just a little mid-palate which we were able to support beautifully with the clone 4.
