"VHR's 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is racy, silky and exceptionally polished. Sweet floral, spice and earthy notes add character. In 2017, the Vine Hill Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is especially gracious, with less weight and overall richness than has been the norm in the past. In 2017, the team led by winemaker Francoise Peschon and vineyard manager Mike Wolf crafted an impeccable, beautifully balanced wine, but, at the same time, there is no getting around the fact that 2017 was a very challenging year, especially for valley floor sites. All things considered, this is a strong showing."
