SHANNON RIDGE OVIS CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2016, California
Sitting on the northeast side of the Clear Lake appellation, this warm area boasts multiple soil types that allow growers a lot of flexibility and experimentation with grape varieties. While Sauvignon blanc is a mainstay, this zone excels with Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, as well as other less common varieties like Barbera and Tempranillo.
Seductive aromas and delicious fruit and spice flavors make this full-bodied wine easy to appreciate. It is packed with ripe plum and black-currant notes, and has a broad yet smooth tannic texture. - 93pts Wine Enthusiast
