This is our fourth release of Esoterica Cabernet Sauvignon. I made this tiny lot using a wonderful blend of North Coast grapes from several different vineyards, mostly in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley and Dry Creek appellations. It is always a pleasure to make small blends like this as they allow for “fine tuning” to get the fruit, tannins, mouthfeel and balance just right perfect without the constraints of big commercial blends.
