Firestone Santa Ynez Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Cabernet Sauvignon begins with elegant aromas of boysenberry and juniper berry with a hint of pencil shaving. Sleek flavors cassis and black currant unfold with nuances of mint and mocha. The texture is deep and elegant, finishing with smooth, supple tannins.

Founded in 1972 by father and son, Leonard and Brooks Firestone, Firestone Vineyard has enjoyed 35 years of family stewardship. Recently, so that they might concentrate on their burgeoning beer business and smaller Curtis Winery, the Firestone family decided to sell their iconic winery. In doing so, they turned to fellow Santa Barbara vintner Bill Foley (Foley Estates Vineyard and Winery, Lincourt Vineyards) as the logical next shepherd for the famous property. As the Firestone’s identified earlier on, Bill, too, recognized Santa Barbara County as the ideal location for the production of world class wines. Bill has vowed to continue the Firestone tradition in striving for the very best in vineyard management and cutting edge winemaking discipline. The vineyard focuses on optimal physiological balance in the vines yielding wines that are brightly flavored, crisp and delicious. Estate Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah vineyards are located on a series of mesas that have gravelly sub-soils, ideally oriented for perfect exposure. The Firestone Vineyard tasting room offers regular winery tours, delicious wines to sample and an idyllic setting for al fresco picnics. Visit the “new” Firestone Vineyard and experience the vision of hospitality that is shared by Bill Foley and the Firestone Family! Read less
