2018 Johnson Family Cabernet Sauvignon: North Coast, California

$21.00 $24.00

Tasting Notes

This wine is an excellent example of quality North Coast Cabernet as well as an expression of the characteristics that make this vineyard and this vintage unique. A concentrated wine, yielding ripe flavors of rhubarb and plum as well as anise and bell pepper, with savory notes of cocoa and mocha. Full-bodied and rich on the palate with polished, integrated tannins and excellent structure.

Winery Details

Johnson Family is a value-driven private label produced by a few great winemakers from selected vineyard sites in California. We have now added Sonoma Coast Chardonnay and Russian River Pinot Noir to the already popular Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. In each case, the producer’s have requested that their identity is not disclosed. What we can be said is that these wines over deliver for their price. They are made utilizing the same exacting standards as much more expensive wine; low yields, minimal handling, sustainable farming, French oak aging and minimal fining or filtration. The proof is in the bottle as you will see when you taste these wines.

Wine Summary

Winery/Producer: Johnson Family - Reed Renaudin (Winemaker)

Grape(s): 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Style: Red, dry

Origin: North Coast, California, USA

Vinification: Sustainable farming practices. The grapes are hand-harvested, grape clusters are gently crushed to release a small amount of juice to help start fermentation. The wine ferments in steel tanks, but is pressed before it is completely dry; it finishes in oak barrels. During the 14 months of barrel aging, the wine is racked occasionally to help rid it of sediment and to provide oxygen to help the maturation process. Minimal intervention.

Aging: Aged in French oak barrels for 14 months.

% ABV: 14.5%
