1988 Firestone Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) The nose is generous with cassis, plum, vanilla, dusty spice, cedar, tobacco, clove and toffee. The palate is lush, juicy and balanced, with underlying tannins that add grip to the finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Our 2012 estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon is a true testament to the varietal and exemplifies what the Santa Ynez Valley is capable of. Intense aromas of blackberry and black cherry, cassis, dark roast coffee and vanilla are accented by nutmeg and allspice. The flavor profile mirrors the bouquet, adding a rich mouthfeel and bold structure.
