2017 ENOS SONOMA COUNTY CABERNET SAUVIGNON
ENOS proved without any doubt that it could dominate the mid $20’s price level with a quality-to-price ratio so breathtaking that it always generated stampedes of reorders. They made making value-Cabernet look easy, and now moving onto the next chapter, they’re taking on a new challenge in the sub $20 level. The 2017 vintage is still sourced from the Totem Ridge Vineyard, located across from Peter Michael, and at $19.99, it’s guaranteed to take your house red to an even higher level.
The Enos 2017 checks in at 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced exclusively from the Totem Ridge Vineyard, located across from Peter Michael’s iconic Knights Valley Vineyard, where the rocky, well-drained soils are ideally suited for ripening Cabernet Sauvignon.
The grapes are from the Cult clone 337 (the backbone of many top tier Cabs) and sourced from the steepest part of the vineyard, where the vines yield just 2 tons per acre. The 2017 vintage is seamless on the palate, packed with intriguing fruits and beautifully intertwined with flowers and minerals. At under twenty bucks, it’s one of the best values in the shop.
