Jack London Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Since our first vintage from the Jack London Ranch in 1976 it has proven itself as an outstanding producer of exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. Located midway up the Eastern flanks of Sonoma Mountain it has a long mild growing season that creates fruit with complexity and balance. The influence of the vineyard’s red volcanic soil and the fruity characteristics of the grapes combine to produce an outstanding, very distinctive Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2015 vintage had warm, dry weather and a light crop. Each block of grapes at the Jack London vineyard was picked between September 12th to 29th at the peak of ripeness. After 28 days of fermentation, the lots were then individually pressed off skins and settled before being transferred into barrels for 24 months of aging. Our Jack London Cabernet Sauvignon shows the ripe, soft and classic character of the fruit-forward 2015 vintage. Aromatic notes of black cherry and vanilla join with hints of fig and chocolate.
