Description

A 96 point Double Gold medal winner at the 2019 SF International Wine Competition, this unique 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced exclusively from 612 vines cultivated on a tiny 1-acre parcel right on the grounds of Stanford University’s School of Medicine (at the corner of Arastradero & Deer Creek) in Palo Alto. It's dense, saturated color paves the way to elevated aromas of lavender, wild berries and Herbes de Provence, followed by a rich, layered mouthfeel laden with juicy black cherry, cedar and crème de cassis. This vintage is gracefully structured with ripe, mature tannins that have been softened by 2-years of aging in French oak (50% new barrels). Exquisitely balanced with vibrant acidity and a poised yet playful finish, it's the ideal complement for grilled lamb, pepper-crusted tuna steak, roasted vegetables, Camembert cheese or pasta with a red sauce. Enjoy now through 2030.
A classic example of intensity tempered by elegance and finesse!
