Winemaker Notes
A bold tribute to our estate, the 2011 Chairman Series Cabernet Sauvignon offers dense color, an enticing bouquet and a dynamic flavor profile. High tones of dark fruits and baking spices are underscored by rich leather and notes of vanilla. A perfectly balanced tannin-acid structure adds weight to the mouthfeel and longevity to the finish.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine is ideal for pairing with a variety of barbecued dishes, braised short ribs, or meaty pizzas.

Production Notes
Average rainfall coupled with a windy spring set the stage for a long, cool summer. True summer heat didn’t arrive until late August, but lasted through early October. Moderate vine vigor led to below-average fruit yields allowing for the development of highly concentrated flavors.
