Handwritten Wines

 

Handwritten 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Carneros 750 ml

The Carneros District of the Napa Valley is most noted for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir because of its southern location near San Pablo Bay. So how has Handwritten defied convention by crafting a Cabernet Sauvignon from this cool climate region? Our vineyard site is located on a steep hillside in the northern most reaches of the District, thus gathering plenty of sunshine throughout an extended growing season to reach perfect ripeness.

 

What we’ve discovered is that the Carneros District creates a Cabernet Sauvignon like none other from the Napa Valley. In the glass you’ll see a wine that is medium to deep ruby with hints of lighter red. There is an uplifting freshness to this wine that is bright and beautifully surprising.

 

When you sip this wine – centered round vivacious acidity – baskets of cherry and bright red fruits such as cranberry, raspberry and pomegranates light up the palate. This is followed by a long finish of warm red plums and baking spices combined with the earthy tones of black olive, black tea and cocoa nibs.
