2018 Firestone Vineyard The Chairman Series Cabernet Sauvignon, Santa Ynez Valley
The 2018 Firestone Vineyard The Chairman Series Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits cherry, plum and spicy black tea aromas on the nose, which lead to a rich palate with soft tannins, balanced acidity and a toasty oak finish.
The Chairman Series wines are composed of some of our best vineyard lots in the Santa Ynez Valley resulting in amazing complexity and depth. For the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon we chose not to blend in any other varietals, allowing the purest expression of the Cabernet grape to shine.

The 2018 vintage began with an early bud break followed by an extremely mild spring and summer season, perfect conditions for longer hang time and more intense flavor development. Our Cabernet harvest kicked off with our first pick on September 18th and extended to November 7th. All of our fruit is harvested in cool temperatures to ensure cold fruit at pressing.
