The 2015 Humble Pie Cabernet hails from four vineyards in the Central Coast growing region. The majority of the grapes come from Hames Valley, which is known for being one of the warmer regions in the Central Coast, and the San Lucas appellation which has the highest diurnal temperature variations of any appellation in California.
WINEMAKING: The 2015 vintage was one of incredible quality but minimal yields. Several years of California drought led to less water for the vines during the growing season. This produced smaller grapes, resembling blueberries, giving the wine both intense color and flavor. This vintage promises a wine rich in color with fragrant aromas and extracted flavors.
TASTING NOTES: This Cabernet Sauvignon offers up notes of sweet black fruits intermixed with roasted coffee, vanilla, black raspberries, melted licorice and spring
FOOD PAIRINGS: Humble Pie Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with beef tenderloin and summer vegetables, duck and mushroom risotto, and distinctive aged cheeses.
