Lush Cabernet from California including a unique Central Coast enclave. The watershed of the Hames Creek is the foundation of the viticulture area Hames Valley, situated in Monterey County in the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range. The Hames Valley is at a higher elevation than Salinas Valley. This protects the vineyards from the ocean breezes, but cools the Hames Valley dramatically when the sun sets, giving the valley the largest diurnal temperature shifts in Monterey County. The bright cherry and berry notes mingle with soft tannins and a juicy, lush mouthfeel.
