2020 Carr Cabernet Sauvignon
The Sky is the Limit Vineyard
116 cases produced
This Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Sky Is The Limit Vineyard in the Happy Canyon AVA. Happy Canyon is the warmest AVA in Santa Barbara. The soils are a mix of stone, river rock and clay loam. This creates the ideal environment for Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines are planted 6’ x 3’ creating competition for water and nutrients. These conditions intensify the flavor concentration in the fruit.
This Cabernet Sauvignon was aged 20 months in 20% new French oak barrels.
This Cabernet Sauvignon has lush layers of baked cherry, blackberry and black currant with a hint of licorice on the nose. The wine is well-balanced providing a rich mouthfeel and flavors of dark fruit, baking spices and a comforting finish of vanilla and caramel.
