2016 Gnekow Family Winery Cabernet Sauvignon, Lodi
Purple color with ripe plum, blackberry, and aromas of allspice and cloves. On the palate this wine is smooth and supple with dark chocolate and berry notes. The finish is fruity and lingering.
The Gnekow Family Winery Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Lodi Appellation. The wine was aged on a combination of French and American oak for only 4 months, lending to its focus on fruit flavors and aromas rather than oak and spice. We finish the wine by blending in around 4% of Primitivo to give the wine a boost of red fruit notes and further soften the palate.
