"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 2014 Director’s Cabernet Sauvignon offers a ripe core of fruits that include blackberry, cherry and cassis as well as warm spices nuances. Dark and succulent with medium density, a balanced palate and a nice integration of wood, this wine is very fragrant and captures the essence of the vintage. Pairs well with grilled lamb chops, barbecued spareribs or French lentils.
