Duckhorn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown Patzimaro Vineyard

Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2005 Vintage) It is a plush and sophisticated Cabernet Sauvignon balancing age-worthy acidity and integrated tannins with a soft, fleshy texture. Classic aromas of black olive, black currant, earth and mint are echoed on the palate alongside mineral undertones. The oak profile lends depth and nuance to this elegantly structured wine.

Winemaker's Notes

In classic Patzimaro style, this wine’s nose is driven by signature truffle and wet earth notes, as well as layers of olive, bay leaf, smoky cedar and cocoa nibs. On the palate, flavors of red currant, Santa Rosa plum and dewberry mingle with hints of dark chocolate and minerals. Smooth tannins carry the wine to a plush finish with lingering notes of star anise, earth and caramel.
