Description

Ministry of the Vinterior, North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon (2017)

Proprietor-négociants, Chris Nickolopoulos and Elijah Pfister work with a handful of California’s most respected grape growers and wineries selecting the finest rows, plots, barrels, and lots from each vintage. They strive to blend these selections into finished wines which carefully balance ripeness and acidity to achieve both regional typicity and unique, expressive flavor profiles.

The 2016 Ministry of the Vinterior Cabernet Sauvignon broods a deep burgundy color with flirty purple undertones.

The nose is inviting with red currants, blackberries, and a hint of blackberry.

In the mouth, the wine reveals a sexy mix of black cherries, blackberries, pipe smoke, and espresso tightly woven into a matrix of supple and broad tannins that layer the flavors densely and persistently on the tongue.
