Robert Sinskey SLD Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
From the winemakers:
Perhaps it’s the small size of the vineyard or that it is almost dry farmed with very low yields, but the SLD Estate Cabernet Sauvignon seems to show the most vintage variation of any other Robert Sinskey Vineyards wine… and that’s a good thing. A great wine, when picked at optimal (not over) ripeness, should reflect the uniqueness of vintage and site.
The 2014 SLD Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a bouquet of violet, blackberry, plum, cassis, cigar box and forest floor suggests quintessential ripeness and typicity of both variety and place. The first sip unveils a fruit character that is fresh and bright, with well-rounded notes of cinnamon, clove, star anise and mocha. Its brilliant acidity and firm, focused tannins give the finish length and frame structure to evolve for the long-haul.
