Ashes & Diamonds Red Hen Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Ashes & Diamonds' Cabernet Sauvignon "Red Hen Vineyard" comes from Bart and Daphne Araujo’s property in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. The well-drained gravelly loam soil acts like a sponge, naturally pulling rainwater down from the neighboring mountains and requiring little to no irrigation. The wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from four different blocks with distinct characteristics, fermented together by native yeasts. The resulting wine has quiet power, poise and impressive length that comes in waves. The bright, fresh fruit combined with silky, weightless tannins are the hallmark of this benchland site.
