2017 Langtry Tephra Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon

2017 Langtry Tephra Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon

Barrel selected, our Tephra Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is the best of the best Cabernet on our property.

This 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon has rich notes of sassafras and ripe cherry, with undertones of dried sage. Its earth-driven profile complements the integrated cacao tannins that complement the bright cherry flavors.

“Showing an attractive touch of maturity after 30 months of barrel aging, this medium to full-bodied wine offers sun-baked earth and cedar aromas, rich black cherry and raspberry flavors with moderate tannins that give it a good little bite on the palate.”

Wine Profile

Vineyard Notes

Made from a combination of grapes on the steep, 35-acre Tephra Ridge Vineyard. Tephra (“ash” in Greek) is rock ejected by volcanic eruption. This historic vineyard is located at the north foothill of Howell Mountain. Its thin, gravelly loam and volcanic soils typify the finest Bordeaux variety sites, as do its climate, topography and vegetation – fir, madrone, black oak and ponderosa pine – yielding a rustic fruit profile.
