This hillside Cabernet gains depth and maturity with each vintage, and with its blackberry-cherry flavors and core of minerality, this fifth release elevates our expectations. We don't make much from this low-yielding vineyard, so early acquisition is key!
The 2017 Element 28 Cabernet Sauvignon presents ample amounts of plum and blackberry fruits, surrounded by notes of clove, vanilla and cardamom. Delicious boysenberry and blackberry fruit flavors are supported by a firm core of tannin. Soft mineral notes add dimension to what promises to be an age-worthy wine.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Element 28 is scented of ripe blackberries, boysenberries and black currant pastilles with touches of dried Provence herbs, lavender, cigars, tilled soil and fallen leaves plus a waft of dried sage. Medium-bodied, the palate is tightly wound and taut with great tension and firm, grainy tannins, finishing long and earthy. - Lisa Perotti-BrownWine Advocate
