2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
Peter Martin Ray Vineyard, Santa Cruz Mountains, CA
What we love
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Peter Martin Ray Vineyard will thrill lovers of old-school California Cabernet. Bold, savory and super-expressive, the 2016 is also a fabulous expression of Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet. Sage, menthol, blackberry, olive tapenade, game, and licorice are some of the many notes that run through the 2016. Classic in build and yet quite rich, the 2016 is shaping up to be a jewel of a wine. This is a tremendous showing from Ceritas.
About this Wine
Typically sold only direct from the winery to an exclusive mailing list, Ceritas Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted with minimal intervention in the vineyard and the cellar. Peter Martin Ray Vineyard is situated at 1,800 feet above the town of Saratoga in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It's a struggle up there, but the vines produce distinctively delicious fruit, characterized by a streak of minerality and salinity, plus a finish that really sticks around. Cheers!
