WEST Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2011 has blackberry dark cherry aromas which continue on the palate accompanied by laurel, bay leaves and cedar. There is a also a hint of licorice and dark chocolate which will continue to evolve. 2011 was a cool season and we had a long harvest season. The grapes were small but intense with slightly lower sugar levels which translated to an alcohol level of 12.8%. The wine has taken some time to develop our signature flavors which bodes well as we believe it will continue to develop in the bottle for quite some time to come. The slow maturation has brought out more refined flavors and dry spiciness. We age the wine in French oak barrels for 26 months and bottle age almost 5 years. This wine was released spring 2018. Enjoy now or let it continue to evolve more complex flavors over the years until at least 2028 and longer.
