Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyards: Crown Point, Vogelzang
Region: Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVA, Santa Barbara County, CA
Bottle Size: 750ml
This wine is a first for Shirah: A 100% varietal Cabernet Sauvignon.
A Caberent that is built for cellaring. Extremely low yielding vines at Vogelzang (Under 1.5 tons/acre) produced a very concentrated, tannic wine and Crown Point’s high end viticulture and very small berried Cabernet resulted in a very nervy, high acid wine with a lot of herbal notes . The wines aged in barrel (50% new French oak) for two years. Blending the two really helped both wines with the tannins and acidity uniting and the overall wine displaying a wider array of fruit and herbal notes.
This wine is classic Happy Canyon in that it shows a lot of herbaceousness. The wine is very perfumed, the oak is quite subtle, and quite enjoyable now. With cellaring, we expect the wine to display even more complexity and round out very nicely.
