2012 Broken Rock Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Sea Bird Cabernet Sauvignon is produced with fruit from the Broken Rock Vineyard which is located on the eastern ridge of Napa Valley near Soda Canyon and Atlas Peak. This 48-acre vineyard allows us to get the best of both worlds in our fruit ? the mouth feel structure that comes from the volcanic rock of the mountainside and rich fruit flavors that are associated with the valley floor. Planted at over 2000 vines per acre to clone 337 onto 3309 rootstock the trellising is aligned for western exposure to ensure plenty of warm afternoon sun.
Tasting Notes: Sea Bird Cabernet Sauvignon is our take on a Napa tribute to a Bordeaux blend incorporating small amounts of Cabernet Franc Merlot and Petit Verdot to create a wine that has aromas and flavors of black cherry and cola nuances of vanilla and white pepper and a fine tannin structure.
