Winemaker Notes

With classic aromas of black cherries, plums, and blackberries our 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon has a luscious elegant entry that opens to a broad and well structured palate. Spicy flavors of clove and anise highlight the deeper mineral notes of graphite and slate, with a hint of black truffle. These elements, with the delicious fruit create a wine that is age worthy, while being approachable in its youth.

VINOUS Review
by Antonio Galloni

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, clearly has terrific fruit density and depth. Muscular tannins wrap around a core of red fruit, flowers blood orange and white pepper. The Peirson Meyer Cabernet needs a bit of time to soften, as so many wines do in 2017. —93 pts.

Kenefick Ranch

Robbie has a 20 year history of working with the vineyard of Dr. Tom Kenefick. Farmed by Dr. Tom since the 1970s, this premium vineyard features exceptional plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and more. In addition to Peirson Meyer, many top producers from around the Valley source fruit from these blocks.
