Handwritten Wines

 

Handwritten 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Oak Knoll 750 ml

The difference between Handwritten’s Oak Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon and others is that we source from one of the few hillside vineyard blocks in the District, just as the region rises up to meet the base of the Mount Veeder District. This site’s eastern aspect allows our Cabernet vines to greet the morning sun, and then relax in the shade of the mountain during the more intense heat of the afternoon sun.

 

This aspect allows for a long hang time deep into autumn, creating a wine that is deep purple to ruby in color. On the palate chocolate mint, tobacco leaf, plum, cassis, blackberry jam, cedar wood, spices such cardamom and cumin are balanced against the nutty, woody flavors of sesame. If this weren’t enough, this full bodied and fruit forward wine finishes with blueberry pie and silky, supple tannins that can make eyes roll back with great satisfaction.
