2017 Heritage Cabernet Case

Heritage Cabernet Sauvignon pays special homage to the variety’s historic place in the Livermore Valley. Grapes are hand-selected from two of the most prestigious Livermore Valley Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards: Wetmore Vineyard and Sachau Hillside Vineyard. Soils there range from deep gravel to Positas and Pleasanton Loam, all of which best accentuate Cabernet’s signature varietal character. Karl vinifies the Cabernet in a dedicated micro winery, where he oversees every step of the process. Small, one-ton fermenters enable Karl to vinify small quantities of heritage grapes, with a focus both on quality and experimentation.
