Lido Bay's Mercenary Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Our grapes come from the Pacific Valley and Newell Vineyards in South Monterey County, which has deep mineral soils with a shaley-loam top soil laced with chalk and limestone. The elevation is about 1,200 feet in the south western portion of the Santa Lucia mountain range. This wine was blended with two lots and five clones of Cabernet Sauvignon from two vineyards: clones 337, 5, 7, 8 and 15. Barrel aged for 18 months in 20% new French oak.

Tasting Notes:

Classic and smooth, our Mercenary 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is smooth sailing with layered flavors of black cherry, ripe plum, red currents, mocha, anise and subtle oak. Perfect for christening you finest vessel or favorite tug boat.

Our grapes come from the Pacific Valley and Newell Vineyards in South Monterey County, which has deep mineral soils with a shaley-loam top soil laced with chalk and limestone. The elevation is about 1,200 feet in the south western portion of the Santa Lucia mountain range. This wine was blended with two lots and five clones of Cabernet Sauvignon from two vineyards: clones 337, 5, 7, 8 and 15. Barrel aged for 18 months in 20% new French oak.
