2016 Goat Trek Cabernet Sauvignon
Dry Creek Valley
Our single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from the Quivira Collection offers the purest possible expression of site, vintage, and variety. Located in the rugged hills of Dry Creek Valley between the floor and the Sonoma Coast, Goat Trek vineyard is immersed in the wilderness. Imagine a goat scaling the 1,200 foot mountain to reach this remote vineyard; this image is where the name "Goat Trek" originates.
2016 was a classic Cabernet Sauvignon vintage. At this high elevation, warm days and moderate evening temperatures gave us perfect tannin maturity, varietal character and structure.
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon utilizes classic Bordeaux winemaking techniques to emphasize texture and ageworthiness. Dark fruit aromas of cassis, cherry, and blackberry mingle alongside more subtle notes of graphite and cigar box. Ripe plum flavors on entry with deep berry fruit coming through on the palette; secondary flavors of dried herbs like thyme and oregano.
