2011 Single Vineyard Home Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
We are proud to offer you our 2011 Shannon Ridge Home Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon harvested at the peak of ripeness. The must was put through an extended maceration allowing for the slow extraction of color and tannins from the skins, with 100% maloactic fermentation in French oak barrels. We believe this wine is a true reflection of the people who made it and the place it was grown. Enjoy it on its own, or it will pair extremely well with your favorite grilled meats, hearty stews or fine desserts.
The Shannon Ridge 2011 "Home Ranch" Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep garnet, ruby color. It has aromas of blackberry, dark cherry, tobacco leaf, mocha powder and sweet vanilla. The flavors include ripe dark fruit compote, coffee bean, dried cranberry and dark chocolate and sweet oak. This wine is full bodied and rich, with a solid mid-palette and a long and lingering finish with silky tannins.
