2017 Wente Wetmore Cab
An estate grown cabernet sauvignon, this wine is a statuesque beauty with notes of violets and chocolate that lick the palate. A round, velvety mouthfeel with sturdy, slightly dusty tannins. Elegant from start to finish, with earthy undertones and ripe blackberry. Acidity keeps it bright

ABOUT THE WINERY
Wente Vineyards is the country’s longest, continuously operated family-owned winery, founded in 1883.
In 1912 Ernest Wente imported cuttings of Chardonnay from the vine nursery at Montpellier, France and sources cuttings from the Gier vineyard in Pleasanton to develop what is now world-renowned as the ‘Wente Clone’. 5 generations late – the Wente family is still producing world class Chardonnays, amongst its other award winning varietals.
