For the last few years this wine has been made as a home for a few extra barrels of Monte Rosso and Montecillo that don't necessarily fit into the single-vineyard wines. I think this has resulted in a very nice wine for the price, but we were limited in our ability to sculpt the wine in the same way as our Old Vine Zin or California Syrah, which we view as our "Intro to Bedrock" offerings. For a couple reasons, we had the opportunity to start shaping this wine a bit more in 2021. First, after decades of selling Bedrock Vineyard Cabernet to other wineries, we moved a chunk of the fruit in-house, which means we can dial in the farming to the needs of this blend. Second, the extra volume of fruit allows us to adjust our vinification techniques and cooperage selection, pushing this wine towards a bit more plushness from valley floor fruit (and toning down a little of the austerity naturally built into our mountain sites). This is still a serious wine that I think will develop better than most Cab in the price range but I think the improved focus has made this both a bit more complete and friendlier for your average weeknight.

A deep, nearly opaque red, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon is spicy, with wild herbs, redcurrants, and mentholated herbs. Full-bodied, with ripe raspberry fruit, this is what a great entry Sonoma Cab can be all about. With fresh herbs, good structure, and ripe fruit, this is a solid value to enjoy over the next several years.
