The MMXX Cabernet Sauvignon from Torciano Family Vineyards, A Memorial Day Tribute. For many, Memorial Day Weekend is the official kickoff to the summer season. But it also signifies a time of remembrance and tribute to those family, friends, and strangers alike who sacrificed their time, in service to country. There are myriad ways to honor those who came before us on Memorial Day.
One specific example is the annual release of our Cabernet Sauvignon from Italy's Torciano Family Vineyards for all our American friends. This wine It is typically only released in the best vintages and is as much a gift from a son to a father as it is a reminder of the hard work and skill put forth by generations past.
The 2018 MMXX is the second vintage of this tribute wine. Made from 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is sourced from the "Heart Block" of the Torciano's estate vineyard in Tuscany.
The vineyard's rocky soils and the unique hillside vantage point influence this Cabernet Sauvignon with concentration, structure, and texture. With notes of ripe black currant, baked plums, leather, and mocha, this wine is luscious and full-bodied, with soft, rounded tannins and a lengthy finish.
