Produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (clones 7 and 337), coming from Calistoga, the 2016 Caber-net Sauvignon Stormy Weather spent 30 months in 100% new French oak barrels. It reveals a deep garnet-purple color and notes of baked berries, plum preserves, spice cake, blackcurrant pastilles and chocolate box with wafts of menthol and incense. Full bodied and seductively textured with beautifully soft tannins, it has bags of earth laced black fruit preserves and a long, spicy finish. 404 cases were made.
Anticipated maturity: 2021-2046
