2013 Unrestricted Cabernet Sauvignon


Tasting Notes:

Patience is truly a virtue when it comes to Michigan Cabernet. This wine had potential from the jump start, with an exclamation from the winemaker post-fermentation: "this will be the best wine of the vintage". After 32 months in French and Hungarian Oak, that promise has rang true. Six carefully selected barrels made the 'reserve' cut, resulting in complex and mouth-drying tannins, with exceptional balance and a lingering finish. A nose of elderflower and rose give way to red fruit undertones.
