Apocalypse Now 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon "Final Cut"

Description

"Winemaking and filmmaking are two great art forms.” – Francis Ford Coppola

ALEXANDER VALLEY

An opulent, structured Alexander Valley Cabernet with flavors of crushed cherries, berries, and cocoa. 

In filmmaking, final cut privilege is reserved for the director to determine the final version of the film released to the public. In honor of the 40th anniversary and its final cut release, we present Apocalypse Now Final Cut, a wine with a striking bouquet containing aromas of raspberry jam, baked blueberries, violets, and smoky spice notes of clove, tobacco, and forest floor. An opulent, full-bodied palate presents juicy flavors of crushed cherries, berries, and cocoa. With the long, decadent finish you’ll find touches of caramel and toasted wood. Excellent structure and tannins make this wine capable of aging for several more years.

The 2017 growing season began with a good deal of precipitation, but aft­er a mild spring, temperatures increased and remained quite warm throughout summer and fall. The vintage delivered smaller than average clusters, leading to excellent concentration and fruit quality.
