Sourced from a block outside Fred and Sally's home, this Princess yields a soft velet mouth feel with full blackberry and cherry components with highlights of blueberry and pomegranate. The finish lingers in the mouth with focused tannins and balanced fruit and acidity.

VINTAGE AND WINEMAKER'S NOTES: One of the greatest joys of being a winemaker is the creative joy of blending. This is the moment when I get to see all the nuances of farming and winemaking that my father and I have worked so hard on come to full fruition. Now comes the time to balance expression of varietal and terroir. When creating our Cabernet Sauvignon, my focus is typically on varietal as opposed to Dedication, which is my love letter to our unique Spring Mountain terroir. In 2009, I tried an experiment; could I break down our terroir to smaller sections, putting a laser focus on micro terroir while maintaining 100% varietal. The trial blends were a huge success with all our family, so we went ahead and bottled two distinct bottlings. The Legacy block focuses on the 8 rows right in front of my parents home yielding a soft velet mouth feel with full blackberry and cherry components with highlights of blueberry and pomegranate. The finish lingers in the mouth with focused tannins and balanced fruit and acidity.
