2017 Lucas & Lewellen Cote del Sol Cabernet Sauvignon
Red Wine from Santa Barbara, United States
Cabernet grapes for “Cote del Sol”, our reserve-level Cabernet, are hand-harvested from the south facing side of the vines only, which grow on a narrow, 22 row slope on the winery’s Valley View Vineyard. This Cabernet is then co-fermented with Syrah from the same vineyard, which adds a spicy, jammy note to the oak infused wine. Flavors of plum, cassis, and dried herbs overlay rich tannins and an opulent finish.

Winemaker: Lucas & Lewellen
In 1975 a friendship became a life-long partnership, converging on the belief in the quality of Santa Barbara. Over the next 30 years Lucas & Lewellen would acquire over 400 acres of vineyards, aiming to stay true to the region’s cool climate style. The fruit has an unusually long "hang time" on the vine, allowing it to fully develop and produce wines of distinctive character.
