2015 Kriselle Cellars Cabernet sauvignon
956 cases produced
Bouquet and palate:
The grapes used in this wine are mere feet from the Kriselle tasting room and patio! If you’ve ever been to visit, you’ve seen that the rocky soil under these grapevines absorbs the sun during the day, then radiates that heat back during the evening. Since Cabernet grapes need a long growing season, the extra heat they get helps them ripen evenly and, equally important, on time.
This wine is filled with notes of red cherries, black and red plums as well as baking spices and an extra serving of cinnamon. After spending 24 months in French oak barrels, including 25% new oak, the finished wine also has a subtle sweetness with good acidity, tannins, and hints of vanilla.
Food pairing suggestions:
Smoked cheddar and herb potato roesti, Coq au Vin, cheeseburgers.
