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. These 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.
Our 2019 Positas is a refined and nuanced Cabernet Sauvignon defined by dark fruits, tar, dried black fig, and sweet dried coastal underbrush. Juicy, firm tannins give way to notes of espresso grounds, dried tobacco leaf, savory undertones, and black fruits. The staying power of this Cabernet is demonstrated in its youthfulness and lingering finish. It will age gracefully for the next 10-15 years.
