2016 Sommelier Challenge
"Winemaking and filmmaking are two great art forms." -Francis Ford Coppola
Because Sonoma County possesses so many different microclimates and terroir variations, the virtue of our Director’s wines lies in the blending process. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is made from several clonal selections grown in vineyards that have distinctly different soil compositions, elevations and climates. The result is a fragrant and complex wine with luscious body and plenty of dark, juicy flavors of plums, cassis and crushed wild berries.
Our 2013 Director’s Cabernet Sauvignon delivers dark, rich nuances of black currants, cherries, cloves, and spicy oak. Luscious and textured on the palate, this wine has beautiful spice notes, a strong finish, and supple tannins. Pair it up with hearty dishes like beef tenderloin, turkey pot pie, or au gratin potatoes.
