Tasting Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "This wine is spicy and rich and displays the chiseled elegance of old vine Cabernet refined in French barrel. Vöcal cares for a five acre parcel of 50yr old vines: dry farmed, own rooted and head trained. The vineyard does not look "conventional" but is nonetheless world class. The effects of the drought were still felt in the 2016 vintage and yields were low and fantastic. Cabernet is legendary in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The warmer sites along the famed Monte Bello road soak up the sun and heat radiating from the Santa Clara Valley below. Thirty nine miles south in the south eastern slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountain range on the backside of Mt. Madonna lies the Bates Ranch. This site is more influenced by the cool Monterey Bay and its Submarine Canyon than the warm Santa Clara Valley."
