Winemaking - We are thrilled to present our 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon! The 2016 grape crop was well-balanced with an average crop load, but smaller with looser clusters. Daytime temperatures during the ripening season were average, but there were many unusually cold nights. Even though sugar accumulation advanced easily, we allowed the fruit to hang longer than normal to achieve the desired flavor content. This vintage was an easy one to manage, the grapes had the right natural balance and were generous with exceptionally delicious flavors.

Aromas - The 2016 Cannonball Cabernet Sauvignon is dark crimson in color and has ripe plum, mocha-crème, wild berry, and red spice aromas.

Taste & flavors - The taste is of red currant fruit with fresh cherry and berry flavors. The mouthfeel starts with a substantial body and has just enough texture and acidity to leave a long and flavorful finish. The wine pairs beautifully with grilled steak, short ribs, lamb chops, pizza, pasta with Bolognese sauce or chocolate desserts!
