CASK 321 History: Equilateral Cask 321 Cabernet Sauvignon is a signature wine for Vintner, Gabrielle Leonhard. Her first release- a 350 case production of the 03 vintage- was a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc. Cask 321 symbolizes the blend ratio, which will remain the same evermore. The 2016 vintage gained more 100 point scores for Cabernet Sauvignon that any other recent vintages. A great addition to your wine collection.
The wine shows the earthiness of Cabernet Franc and the polish of Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is extremely aromatic with smooth flavors and a lingering finish. Hints of dark unsweetened chocolate, aged leather, ripe herbal flavors of rosemary and spice.
The Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc were grown at the certified organic and Gold Medal winning O’Connell Family Estate Vineyard. The fruit is prized for its ability to harmonize the components of the wine into a seamless tasting experience.
If you like Cabernet and Chocolate- this is your wine! Try it with all cuts of beef- grilled or roasted, game meats- venison, boar, and savory dark chocolate desserts.
