Eponymous Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Overview

Eponymous 2017 shimmers with a stunning deep-purple inky color and exudes wonderful intensity and complex notes as soon as the cork is pulled. Aromas include ripe plums, blackberries, cassis, hints of violets, toasted rosemary, and dark chocolate. The well- integrated fruit carries over to the palate, with a balanced structure and ample but supple tannins that lead to a long and polished finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The 2017 vintage provided another very good growing season, with enough rain through mid- Spring, and a dry summer and fall with few heat spikes. As devastating as the fires were in Northern California in mid-October, more than 85% of the Cabernet grapes were picked before the fires – including this vintage of Eponymous. The grapes come from 4 distinctly different vineyard sites. Mt. Vedeer is a core vineyard the winery has been drawing from for almost 10 years – and it is 0% of the blend this year. The 2017 vintage was then nicely rounded out by grapes from Howell Mountain, Coombsville, and the bench lands of Atlas Peak. After picking, hand-harvested fruit was fermented and then aged 20 months in 60% new oak barrels (90% French, 10% American, with frequent racking the first year.
