kathgoldMade in tandem by Nick and his middle daughter, Katherine, this very popular Cabernet Sauvignon has become a close family tradition over the years. The 2018 vintage marks a transition to an incredible new vineyard called Stonemason Hill. Located in Alexander Valley, this aptly-named site has large rocks leading up to a stone-walled terrace. Complex and elegant, this vineyard’s beautiful gravel loam soil with mature vines—many over thirty years old—is ideally suited for the style and winemaking techniques which have made this wine so successful for us. A proprietary name rather than a single-vineyard wine, the Katherine Cabernet is perfect for casual dining and discerning tasters looking for an elegant drop with loads of personality and style.

2019 Cabernet Sauvignon
Stonemason Hill, Alexander Valley

Tasting Note: Intense purple and reds in color. The aromatics are opulent and very floral. Black fruits of black cherry and plum were a common theme. The mouth follows with rich dark fruits of blackberry, plum, and some licorice texture. Lush ripe tannins, full body and the nice creamy velvet tongue-wrapping flavor. Drink now or over the next 10 years… if you can wait that long! 

2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
Stonemason Hill, Alexander Valley

Tasting Note: The color is bright and deep. Purple edges with deep red middle. The nose is immediately fruit driven.  Ripe raspberries, black cherry and plum. In other words it smells just like a Cabernet grape. In the mouth complexity is the key. Lush ripe cherries and ripe blue berries on the front of the tongue. The mid mouth is all about power and richness. Comprised of dark plum and chocolate. The finish has supple round tannins with a long elegant finish. Hmm hmm hmm Drink now or over the next 10 years if you can wait that long!
