For B-Side Cabernet Sauvignon, most of the blend is from Napa Valley, with a majority from the idyllic Pope Valley and Gordon Valley regions. These areas, with their diverse soils and higher elevations, produce Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with distinctive flavors and big, round tannins. The balance of the fruit comes from other North Coast regions including Sonoma’s iconic Alexander Valley and the rugged Mendocino County. B Side Cabernet Sauvignon is a deeply concentrated and expressive wine with aromas of boysenberry, blackberry, mocha, crushed lavender and sweet oak. This full-bodied wine is lush with layers of dark fruit, jam, pepper spice and hints of Blackstrap molasses making it well structured and intensely flavored with soft tannins and a lengthy finish. This wine is aged for 12 months in predominantly French oak barrels with a small portion seeing time in American oak. The toasty French oak frames the wine and the addition of the small amount of American oak gives a pleasing, subtle coconut lift.
