2017 Cabernet Sauvignon "Colonel's Vineyard"

With the enviable position at the top of the property, The Colonel’s Vineyard is a small, 1 ¼ acre block planted to Cabernet Sauvignon. This pristine block has a gently sloping south-west exposure for even ripening of the fruit.

Once again, the 2017 Colonel’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was vinified utilizing the barrel fermentation process that winemaker David Jeffrey learned from Alain Raynaud while working at Chateau Quinault in St. Emilion.

The Colonel’s Vineyard bottling is David Jeffrey's tribute to California Cabernet Sauvignon – it is bolder, more extracted, more oak impacted than any other wine we make, and yet still has the signature balance of Calluna wines.
