2015 SHANNON RIDGE RESERVE HOME RANCH CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$38.00 $23.00

I pay particular attention when an experienced vineyard manager finds a piece of property he feels is capable of producing world-class grapes, then puts everything on the line and plants a vineyard. That’s what Clay Shannon did when he discovered a high-elevation site with lean volcanic soils. At $38, his Reserve Cabernet is a serious value, but at $23, you’ll want to make some serious room in the cellar.

Shannon Ridge’s flagship Home Ranch Vineyard is planted at 2400 feet in the recently formed High Valley Appellation in Lake County. The region experiences cool marine breezes that flow across the valley, and help the grapes maintain a powerful structure.

The 2015 Reserve Cab spends 18 months in oak barrels, and a year in bottle before release, and the wine is deep, rich and savory, with firm tannins and a long expansive finish.

Tasting Notes from Wine Enthusiast, “Ripe in flavor and brawny in structure, this full-bodied wine offers enticing aromas of oak spice, sunbaked earth and olive. Blackberry and plum flavors glide along the palate, with moderate tannins and firm acidity to keep it grippy and balanced.” WINE ENTHUSIAST 90 POINTS

Tasting Notes from Edward, “Here’s a Perfect Everyday Drinking Cabernet, and at just $23, you can open 2-bottles tonight… one for me and one for the wife. Try this one with a Bison Burger, blue cheese crumbles, and sauteed mushrooms for a perfect pairing – best wine with burgers. Lake County is located directly above Napa Valley, and the Reserve fruit from this region is superb, and very comparable to Napa. Excellent vintage to grab a 15-pack or three… No Brainer, Case-Worthy Cab. Cheers!”
