Ripe black cherries, dusty earth, new leather, violets, and hints of leafy herbs all emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Cemetery. It's a fleshy, sexy 2017 with terrific tannins, medium to full body, notable purity, and a great finish. This classy, brilliant 2017 can be drunk today or cellared for 15-20 years.

The 2017 Cemetery emerges from a top site in the center of St. Helena. Deep, rich and powerful, the Cemetery shows all the pedigree this site is capable of. Inky and yet structured with notes of dark, brooding fruit, gravel, licorice, spice and menthol, the 2017 has so much to offer.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Cemetery has a nose of baked cherries, warm plums, dried herbs and tobacco with pencil lead and tilled soil hints. It's full-bodied, firm and grainy, with a good amount of black fruit and freshness, finishing long and earthy.

Forthright, with a blast of steeped plum and blackberry flavors that tumble around with warmed licorice, roasted mesquite and slightly toothy bramble notes. A bit rambunctious, with the vintage's slightly rustic edge on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2028. 185 cases made.
