2017 Parducci Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve True Grit
2017 Parducci Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve True Grit; Mendocino, California
Winemaker Notes; The 2017 True Grit Cabernet Sauvignon is notably juicy! It opens up with flavors of currant and dark cherry followed by subtle olive tapenade. Its structure is supported by a solid yet round tannin profile and a lingering vanilla bean finish. Blend: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5% Petite Verdot, 1.5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petite Sirah. Produced in a California Certified Sustainable Winery (CCSW). Vegan.
A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux’s Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
A large and diverse appellation within California’s North Coast AVA, Mendocino is home to several smaller sub-regions—most notably the Anderson Valley. This scenic region, with rolling hills covered in redwood forests as well as vineyards, is one of the world’s top producers of certified organically-grown grapes. Due to wide geographical and climatic variation, a vast array of wine styles can be found here.
