2019 Cabernet Sauvignon728 Barrel Select
After months of barrel samplings and blending trials, winemaker Jeff Ames selected 5 barrels to combine for this limited release reserve. The Rockmere 728 offers a plush, predominantly black fruit foundation of blackcurrant, plumb, and blackberry. Complementing the fruit, you may detect hints of espresso bean, lavender, and nutmeg through an incredibly long finish. The result is a full bodied wine with a harmonious tannin structure. Pair the 728 with a steak or braised lamb.
As with our 2019 estate Cabernet, 728 can be cellared for 15-20 years. However if you’re in the mood for a younger, more opulent style wine, this is ready to enjoy now.
