ABOUT THE WINE

The Heritage Vines Cabernet Sauvignon barrel auction lot represents the finest Cabernet Sauvignon fruit Robert Young Estate Winery farms and produces. The specific area in the vineyard that this wine hails from is southern facing, on a rocky volcanic outcrop made of Spreckels loam.

The vines naturally balance themselves in this area, creating small clusters of densely colored and powerfully flavorful fruit. Through meticulous viticulture and winemaking their team harnesses the full potential of this area to make this outstanding offering.

The wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new French oak barrels. It is unfined and unfiltered while aging for a full 24 months. The results—a dynamic, rich, layered, nuanced Cabernet Sauvignon jam packed with currant, crème de cassis, black figs and toasted notes. This is an example of some of the best Alexander Valley hillside Cabernet Sauvignon.
