2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Blind Eye

This Cabernet Sauvignon was born and bred in Calistoga, crafted from the "near-perfect" 2016 growing season. Gentle aromas of blackberry, cocoa powder, and toast are wrapped in a tarry minerality. The wine has great depth of fruit, showing dark currant and chewy cherry, balanced with dusty, earthy notes. A multi-dimensional wine that is maturing beautifully and ready to enjoy now.

The Calistoga American Viticultural Area has the highest average difference in Napa Valley between daytime heat and cool nights. This 2016 Fairwinds Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the strength of having daytime heat for color and flavor and cool nights for acidity and structure.

The name 'Blind Eye' alludes to the great British Admiral, Lord Nelson, who ignored a flag order to retreat by putting his telescope to his blind eye. He went on to win the battle.

49 cases bottled. Calistoga, Napa Valley. 14.5% alcohol. 23 months in French oak.
