Cabernet Sauvignon “Dante”, Michael Pozzan, CA, 2016

Michael's wine roots trace back to the late 1800's in Piedmont, Italy where his great grandfather first

planted vines. After traveling to America in the early-mid 1900's, Michael’s grandfather moved to

Sonoma where he planted 35 acres of Zinfandel in 1948. Some of these original vines still exist today and

can be seen at the end of Pozzan Road in Healdsburg, Sonoma County. Michael Pozzan proudly presents

Dante, named after his eldest son, Michael Dante Pozzan, and inspired by wines savored during travels

through the Italian countryside.

Tasting Notes: The mouth is rich and dense, with layers of freshly roasted coffee, chocolate covered

cherries, a solid oak structure lending clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon, and a bright, juicy acid just ready

for food. The finish is lengthy and perfumed with Tahitian vanilla bean.

 

Cabernet Sauvignon “Hillside", Juggernaut, CA 2017

Hillside vineyards have less access to water, with the rockier soil also holding fewer nutrients. These

conditions stress the vines, resulting in the production of a fraction of the fruit of most vineyards. The

harsh environment causes the vines to struggle, yielding fewer clusters and smaller berry size. Since

most of the flavor resides in the grape skins, the result is berries that are loaded with rich, ripe, intensely

concentrated flavors and complexity.

Tasting Notes: Dense and velvety, with vanilla and ripe black currents. Aromatics of anise, black fruit and

cassis with smooth, luxurious texture.

 

Cabernet Sauvignon, Austin Hope, Paso Robles, CA, 2018

In 1978, a family of four arrived in Paso Robles to start a new life and in time, the Hope family became

one of the area’s top grape growers. Austin Hope grew up working alongside his father, inheriting his

love and respect for the region. Today, Austin is showcasing an even greater sweep of the Paso region

and expressing a similar richness with a recently released Cabernet Sauvignon. The source of the wine is

far-reaching within the appellation - a most discerning group of vineyards located on gently sloping

hillsides and hidden pockets across the domain, providing dimension to the Cabernet varietal.

Tasting Notes: Deep ruby in color, it expresses aromas of fresh black currants and cherries accompanied

by subtle smoky notes and dried spices. On the palate, this lavish powerful wine is layered with juicy

blackberry, ripe cherry, vanilla bean and brown butter. It’s full-bodied and rich, balanced by a touch of

bright acidity and firm polished tannins.
