Seduce Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 - 9L  Salmanaza

Seduce Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 - 9L Salmanaza

This smooth, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon has just won its third gold medal in the world's largest competition for American wines, up against the best of the best.

Tasting Notes

The wine shows a little cigar box and dark fruit on the nose with floral hints of lavender and just a touch of chocolate. Soft toffee and honey with a little red licorice combine on the palate with a smooth, structured mouth feel. The classic Cabernet finish of cedar and tobacco overlays a mild mineral note indicating the wine's potential for pairing with a wide range of foods. The velvety tannins give proof of its superior structure and worthiness to lay down or enjoy now.

Production Notes

Seduce is largely Dry Creek Valley Estate Vineyard fruit with a touch of Peaceland Vineyard mountain Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. Each vineyard lot is picked at optimal ripeness and made into a standalone wine then Bill creates a blend to seduce his pallet for fine wine with character and flavor.

Winemaker Notes

Designed to allow you to drink early or or to lay-down for a while, Seduce is a smooth, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. Bright and elegantly complex, with a structure and balance supporting the entire taste spectrum this wine has all the flavor characteristics of a beautiful, aged, Cabernet.

Cooperage Notes

French Oak for 22 months, approximately 40% new, 40% one use and the balance neutral.
