2019 Memento Mori Cabernet Sauvignon

Incredibly elegant and polished, our 2019 'Flagship' Cabernet Sauvignon is a composite blend of the five heritage vineyards we exclusively source from ~ Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Beckstoffer Las Piedras, Vine Hill Ranch, Weitz Vineyard, and Oakville Ranch. Energetic waves of blackberry, boysenberry, cassis, cigar box, spiced mocha and clove leap out of the glass, continuing to expand and evolve with time. This wine is a decadent mixture of black, blue and red fruits that are supported by expressive minerality and cashmere-like tannins. Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak, you can taste the energy and tension of the vintage, while a firm structure of keen acidity and crushed rocks lead into an intoxicatingly long finish. Expressive in its youth, this wine will only get better with every year that passes.

2018 Memento Mori Cabernet Sauvignon

Sourced from Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Beckstoffer Las Piedras, Vine Hill Ranch, Weitz Vineyard, and Oakville Ranch vineyards, the dense purple core is enhanced by the decadently layered fruit of this formidable wine. Ripe blackberries, crushed boysenberries, black plums, spiced mocha and hints of cassis are backed by touches of black tea, wet stone, cigar box and Indian spices that continue to evolve in the glass. A medley of wild blackberries, blueberries and black raspberries frame a sophisticatedly nuanced mid-palate, all wrapped in plush, fine-grained tannins that sit on the palate with ease and are an absolute pleasure to imbibe. Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak, this spotlights the grace and beauty of the 2018 vintage in a package that’s both ready to drink and built for long-term aging.
