Winemaker Notes

The 2018 vintage is proving to become one of my all time favorite growing seasons and this is wine a reason why. Our new Cabernet Sauvignon, formerly known as the “Flying B”, is driven aromatically with red fruits—bright raspberry, fresh strawberries, and is followed by ultra pretty hints of perfumed lavender, sage, and herbs de Provence. The palate has rich, chewy tannins, loads of length, is well balanced, and everything that I love about simply pure great Cabernet. I think this is easily the best Bledsoe Family Winery Cabernet Sauvignon we have made yet. Drink now through 2035!
