Fable Cabernet California
Story

Vineyards- Sourced from benchland parcels of Heringer Vineyards in the Clarksburg AVA of California. All sustainably farmed, no glyphosate used in the vineyard management.

Vintage- The 2017 vintage offered excellent growing conditions. A very wet winter followed by a sunny spring started the year off right. The rest of the vintage would have been perfect if not for a heat wave that struck in August. The vines shut down for a week and some fruit was lost but the remaining grapes benefitted from the smaller crop in terms of concentration.
