2010-Artesa Winery Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
This gorgeous estate is tucked away midways between Sonoma and Napa counties. The vineyards spread across steep hillsides and benefit from the cool Pacific wind breezes while bathing in the bright sunlight. This Bordeaux like environment provides a very sublimely elegant style of Cabernet Sauvignon that requires a bit more bottle maturation than the typical fruit bombs. It rewards you with a much more meal-friendly talent that enhances the food flavors rather than over-power them. It will rise to stardom soon as the older vintages gain their proper respect. 1 hour of decanting required.
