Iron + Sand Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (Paso Robles, CA)
Producer Notes: Sustainably sourced from two renowned Paso Robles vineyards located in prime sub-AVAs. The San Miguel District AVA is subject to the effects of large diurnal shifts. El Pomar District has the marine fog to help cool vineyards. Aromas of dark plums, black cherries, freshly picked black berries and raspberries intertwined with hints of graphite and baking spices. Fermenters situated on top of storage tanks, allows for minimal pump usage while sending pomace to our press. Aged 9-12 months in neutral French and American oak barrels.
Vinous, 90 Points: “Deep violet. Dark berries, cherry pit and a hint of licorice on the spice-accented nose. Chewy and energetic on the palate, offering bitter cherry, cassis and cracked pepper flavors and a touch of mintiness. Finishes long and taut, with building spiciness and gently chewy tannins that come in slowly."
