The San Francisco International Wine Competition awarded Laurentia Vineyard and Winery a Gold medal for their 2016 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Stoltz Block. This is made from 100% estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
On the nose aromas of plum, black cherry and blackberry with a discreet background of toasted oak and spice. Fleshy black cherry, warm cassis and vanilla flood the front palate along with silky tannins. Complexity and layering are present in the mid-palate where we find notes of smoke, new leather, tart cherry and pomegranate intertwined with dusty tannins and cocoa. The finish offers relaxed and well organized tannin profile that carries persistent notes of cassis, leather and cocoa.
