2017 Juggernaut Hillside Cabernet Sauvignon- Rich and intense with a complex character and smooth finish. Luxurious texture with black currants and vanilla. Aroma of licorice and blackberry. French oak beautifully transforms intense mountain fruit into a wine with uncommon richness, yet smooth, long finish.
Steep hillside vineyards present the ultimate challenge. Hillside vineyards have less access to water, with the rockier soil also holding fewer nutrients. These conditions stress the vines, resulting in the production of a fraction of the fruit of most vineyards. The harsh environment causes the vines to struggle, yielding fewer clusters and smaller berry size. The result is berries that are loaded with rich, ripe, intensely concentrated flavors and complexity.
Hillside vineyards are special. So is the wine that is crafted from them.
