Tomahawk Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
2013
2013

The planting of a new vineyard can sometimes feel a bit like the experience of unrequited love. The vintner gives unconditionally without return for several years.  The focus on nurturing the vines to establish their young roots, precludes the young vineyard from having to bear fruit.  It is typical that a young vineyard will come into balance after five or six years so that at last it can reciprocate.

 

Tomahawk Vineyard was precocious in its generosity from the start.  Planted in 2002, our winemaking team marveled at the quality of the fruit it set in 2006 and bottled the first Cabernet from this block.  Since then, Tomahawk has matured and traveled to a place we never imagined.  Join us in celebrating perfection.

Wine Notes
Color
Deep inky purple red
Aroma
Cherry cola, raspberry, interlaced with coffee and hints of dried sage
Taste
Broadly structured with powerful tannins, a rich and full-bodied palate. The finish is equally powerful but enveloped silky, classic Stags Leap District acidity and balance.
