2011 Agharta Mountain Terraces Cabernet Sauvignon
About Mountain Terraces
Located approximately 800 feet above Monte Rosso Vineyard perched above Sonoma Valley, this steep mountain vineyard is just about as impressive as they come. Two distinct soils make up this vineyard, the typical deep red ‘Monte Rosso’ soil that covers most of the vineyards in this area that produces exceptional wines. It is the second type of soil, the white fluffy volcanic Rhyolitic soil that we choose to work with for its elegance and purity.
Winemaker's Tasting Note
Deeply fruited & exotic, this mountain-grown Cabernet is gorgeous in every way. Soft tannins envelope the dense, ripe fruit and buttress the size of this classically built wine. Concentrated to the core, the 2011 Mountain Terraces Cabernet Sauvignon is drinking well now and promises to continue developing and offering more exotic spice, texture and flavor as it rests in your cellar.
