2017 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

2017 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

With a welcoming aroma of dense ripe cherries, our 2017 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is immediately approachable. The initial cherry flavor carries through to the palate and extended maceration adds richness with developed tannins. With 18 months of aging in predominantly French oak barrels, rich oak notes complete the wine.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our LangeTwins Estate Cabernet Sauvignon draws on winegrapes from our estate vineyards in the center of the Lodi Appellation. From gentle rolling vineyard floors to the influence of a nearby river, each vineyard has unique attributes that are essential to the consistent style and quality.
Production Notes
The 2017 growing season marked the end of the drought with heavy winter rainfall that continued into the spring. Due to the rain, timely vineyard practices were crucial and we adapted our cultural techniques to maintain vine balance. Heat spikes during late August to mid-September required close attention to irrigation to ensure vine health. With the given weather, our winegrapes developed the required sugars, but full flavor maturation delayed our harvest. The wait was worth it and the outcome was a vintage that boasts bright and fresh whites with ideal levels of acidity and red wines that are showing good intensity and concentration.
