2014 Lexington Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Gist Ranch Estate is deep, yet also retains a distinctly savory, mountain character. Red stone fruit, lavender, and spice are all generous in the glass.
The vineyard was densely planted in the year 2000 at elevations reaching 2300 feet above sea level, 17 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. The heavily fractured, Vaqueros Sandstone soils and unique mountain micro-climate produce singular, deeply concentrated wines that demonstrate the power and elegance of the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation. The Gist Vineyard is farmed to organic principles with an emphasis on “Living Soils” and bio-diversity.
Santa Cruz Mountains
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Gist Ranch Estate is powerful, deep and fleshy, yet also retains a distinctly savory, mountain character. Red and purplish stone fruit, lavender, mint and spice are all generous in the glass. This relatively soft, fruit-driven Cabernet will be ready to deliver quite a bit of pleasure upon release.
