Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 Drake

The young man got out of his dusty truck and surveyed the young vines, a single square acre he had risked all to plant in the sunny valley, dominated by citrus. He watched as cars passed, slowing but not stopping in a town with few stoplights and many dirt roads. He gave the vine nearest to him a gentle caress and got back inside, knowing his risk would yield a great return.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
It shows excellent varietal character, with a bit of menthol and smoked meats on the nose winding into a base of black cassis. On the palate it is full bodied with black pepper and blackberry notes finishing into well integrated tannins and a balanced acidity.
Vineyard Notes
Ben Drake was the namesake behind Drake Enterprises, the premier vineyard management company in Temecula Valley and one that traced its roots all the way back to 1980, when Temecula was just a small and isolated ranch town dotted by occasional rows of homes. His vision of quality and dedication to top notch planting, cultivation and harvesting methods played a large part in establishing Temecula Valley as a world class wine destination. This wine is from the only vineyard he planted for himself and Europa Village has been proud to receive this fruit since 2011. It serves as a memorial to the man who we so sorely miss and so greatly thank for all he did to make our Valley what it is today.
Food Pairing Notes
The perfect wine to toast our valley and all that is now, and all that it will become.
