Cassata Vineyard

New Release!

Gorgeous right out of the gate with ripe berries, cherries, and beautiful dried rose. The palate offers raspberry, pomegranate, cherry, ripe black plum, with notes of cedar and fresh leather. Polished with a very modern feel - think rich, concentrated, intense, deep and very long, with tons of sexy black fruit, and just the right touch of French oak. 

Elegantly balanced with a dash of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, displays a full tannin structure up front, yet finishes with a silky viscous texture. Drinks great now, and will easily go for a decade or more in your cellar.
