Jackson Estate Trace Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon

Jackson Estate Trace Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Deep, rich, chunky, full-bodied and voluptuous. The Trace Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon features loads of black fruit, licorice, espresso roast, slight cigar box and a lingering hint of chocolate. On Trace Ridge, we grow Cabernet Sauvignon in and above the morning fog line where ultimately the warm sunshine creates small grape clusters with intense flavors.
