2017 The Experiment Cabernet Sauvignon
Peju winemaker Sara Fowlers yearly barrel experiment is well known among her fellow winemakers in Napa Valley. For the 2017 vintage she chose to work with 37 different barrel toasting styles and 22 coopers, then shared this learning tool with her peers by offering a comparative tasting to determine the flavors and textures that come from each unique oak treatment. This wine is not only a unique expression of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, it is also an ode to the spirit of the Napa Valley. The vintners of Napa Valley see each other as partners working towards the same goal, and it is this collaborative spirit that makes the Valley so special.
Rich and round, this bold Cabernet Sauvignon exudes deep herbaceous notes of cherry, baking spices, and lavender. Layers of vanilla bean, cassias and cedar reveal themselves on the palate finishing with notes of butterscotch and dark plum. This exquisite wine is delicious now and will continue to mature for the next ten years.
