Lexington 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon

Gist Vineyard, Santa Cruz Mountains

The 2011 vintage produced structured Cabernet with darker fruit and good weight. The wines have a sturdy character to them that suggests they will age quite well.  The nose is exotic in classic Santa Cruz Mountains fashion: forest floor, orange peel and black cherry. The mouth has a slightly darker fruit profile with snappy acidity, mountain tannin and good concentration. We think this is a classic vintage of Cabernet, one that will likely live for a decade plus.
