Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Dry Red Wine
Planted in 2000, the name Valley View Vineyard speaks for itself. It sits 15o feet higher than our Chamisal Creek Vineyard and overlooks the Sacramento Valley. The Sutter Buttes, Mt. Lassen and even Mt. Shasta are visible from the top of the vineyard. Gravelly loam soils make the vines work to provide intense and balanced fruit.
The Grindstone Cabernet Sauvignon is that rich, balanced wine that is perfect on its own or paired with a nice dinner.
This full-bodied, cellar-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon emanates with penetrating bouquets of roses, lush black currant, and earthy, terroir notes that are fitting for the rich soil of Chamisal Creek. These effervescent aromas are but a prelude to elegant flavors of blackberry, espresso, vanilla, cassis and black pepper. Bursting with nuance and a dry yet delicate personality, this wine will only continue to get better with age.
Beef Tri-Tip, seasoned with garlic and thyme, accompanied by savory sweet potatoes, roasted bell peppers, and enjoyed with a mouthwatering chimichurri sauce.
Lamb Chops dusted with fresh rosemary leaves and a pinch of cayenne pepper, drizzled with a blackberry-black pepper sauce, and complemented by grilled asparagus and California-grown wild rice.
Mature Gouda and Cheddar cheeses with rounded taste and a sharp savory flavor. Blackberry Souffle with Molten Chocolate Filling.
