The Arroyo Seco influence can easily be seen in this Bordeaux-style Cabernet Sauvignon, which offers a deep garnet color and recognizable aromas of plum, dark fruits and black cherry mingled with spice from the one-third of new oak barrels used in aging. This substantial wine is medium to full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a lingering finish. In the glass, flavors of ripe fruit compete with classic Cabernet touches of forest floor, cocoa and a pleasant earthiness. Traditional components such as Petite Verdot and Malbec bring deep color, texture and greater interest to the wine. Sanctuary has been a signature vineyard for Jekel for many years, and this Jekel Cabernet will continue to improve and evolve in the bottle for three to seven years.
