Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Weathered from metamorphic rock, Suther is a gravelly loam found on the side slopes of mountains underlain by sandstone and shale. Primarily located between 500-3,000 feet in elevation, Suther soils are only found in the geographic locations associated with great Cabernet Sauvignon. The granular structure and shallow nature of Suther soils provide little water retention and minimal biologic activity, while increased sun and wind exposures ensure low vigor, small berry formation and uniformity in ripeness. Suther soils tend to be nutrient deficient, lacking in nitrogen, phosphorus and boron. The reddish nature is indicative of oxidized soils that are high in iron content. With a pH ranging from 5.5 to 6.0, Suther soils are moderately acidic.
Production Notes
On the nose, ripe lush blue fruit aromas, crushed violet candy and toasted vanilla bean co-mingle with intriguing, sweet earth tones. The plush, rich mouth entry is incredibly enticing and complements the summer ripened black cherry, toasted almond and savory herb layers that define this wine. Its staying power is a hallmark of the Suther soil but its profoundness is a mark of the stunning 2021 vintage. This masterpiece of Suther soils and Cabernet Sauvignon will age gracefully for the next decade and beyond. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
