Laely Cabernet 2020


Tasting Notes

Inky plum hue in glass, with rich aromas of ripe cassis, black cherry, dark chocolate and vanilla spice. Elegant, silky and powerful on the palate with boysenberry, earth, cedar, black pepper and mocha notes.

Food Pairing

A delicious pairing with red meats, red-sauced dishes like eggplant parmesan or herb crusted ahi tuna.

Tech Details

Cabernet Sauvignon harvested from Rutherford and St. Helena and the Petit Verdot from Oakville.

Low rainfall in early 2020. Early bud break and mild temperatures helped grow evenly developed clusters with concentrated, high quality berries. The summer was sunny with above average warmth. Early harvest. Slow, long maceration at lower temperatures. Aged for 24 months in 3 year old seasoned Seguin Moreau barrels. Racked 5 times over the course of aging, so the tight grain mellowed the abundant tannins which will allow this wine to age well into the middle of the century.
