2019 Lake Sonoma Lazy Dog Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma Valley
The 2019 vintage is clean, bright and fresh with aromas of sour cherry, red licorice and vanilla bean with a hint of red clay and saffron. On the palate, these develop into flavors of rhubarb, red currant and milk chocolate.
Pair with lamb chops or quiche of mushroom, feta and spinach with grilled asparagus.
A cooler site in Sonoma, Lazy Dog Vineyard is a small family-owned vineyard with five acres of Cabernet Sauvignon clone 337. The 2019 vintage was harvested in late October and vinified separately to preserve the personality of Lazy Dog Vineyard’s unique terroir.
Aged 22 months in specially selected barrels composed of 40% new French oak and 60% neutral oak.
