Neal Family Cabernet Sauvignon Altas Peak Second Chance Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of blackberry, ripe plum and earthy/toasty oak fill the nose. This is a powerful mountain Cabernet, full of black fruit and blackberry jam, as well as cured olive and cigar box characters. Explosive tannins in its youth, this wine is starting to show the potential grace that will come with extended bottle aging. Barrel aged 29 months in 100% new French oak. 205 cases produced. Alcohol 14.3%.

He built Neal Family Vineyards with the intention of producing wines that exemplify the quality of the winegrapes grown by his family for many years. Wines produced by the Neal Family Vineyards winery are a tribute to his father, who taught Mark the importance of family and friends, a true appreciation of the vineyards and the winegrowing process, and the love of great food paired with exceptional wine.
