2017 Cabernet Sauvignon "Winemaker's Cuvee" (Caton, Ty)

Ty Caton, Cabernet Sauvignon "Winemaker's Cuvee", Moon Mountain District, Sonoma County, California, US 2017


90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot


We're going to the Moon! Moon Mountain of Sonoma (aka Napa's Mount Veeder) is part of the Mayacamas Mountains, which divide the region from Napa. Though the AVA designation here is new, these hillsides are home to some of the most historic mountain vineyards in California, dating to the 1890s. High elevation and rocky, volcanic terrain imbue Moon Mountain Cab with uncommon richness and intensity while Caton gives his wines the deluxe California Cabernet treatment with plenty of French oak barrel aging. The result is sizable with dark fruit, creamy vanilla, and suave tannins that you'll be over the moon for. Only 600 cases made!

Serving Suggestion:  Grilled beef liver with caramelized onion and mushrooms.  A savory winter stew with plenty of carrots, potatoes and bay leaves floating around.
