Tumbled through the ages by creeks and rivers, Positas is a gravelly Loam soil formed in alluvial material. Primarily located between 200-1,000 feet in elevation, Positas soils are found on stream terraces and side slopes, commonly referred to as benchland, home to some of the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon. Positas soils are nutrient rich and moderately deep, yet well-drained. Cabernet thrives in the environment provided by Positas soils, yielding fruit with thick skins, broad tannins and rich characteristics. With a pH ranging from 6.0 to 8.0, Positas soils are slightly acidic.
The 2016 Positas is a refined, yet powerful Cabernet Sauvignon. Detailed nose of red fruits, crushed river rock, fennel blossom, and spicy dried sage. Chewy tannins give way to notes of sweet loam, mocha, and elegant cherry compote. The freshness of this Cabernet Sauvignon is demonstrated in its youthfulness and lingering finish; it will age gracefully for the next 10-15 years.
