Winemaking Notes: Freelander wines are made in St. Helena, CA, and the grapes are sourced from select vineyards that produce elegant and impressive wines. The 2017 harvest was accelerated by a heat wave over Labor Day weekend, pushing up sugar levels and forcing Freelander to adapt quickly to rapidly ripening vineyard fruit. Prior to that, even summertime temperatures made for a nice growing season that was kicked off by a moderate spring. This 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in French and American oak, and released in September of 2018.

Tasting Notes: Aged in American oak, it shows massively rich flavors of blackberries and cassis. This full-bodied wine shows lush mouthfeel, balance and complexity. The ripe, sweet tannins and a touch of toasted oak complete the gentle finish.
