Appellation & Farming
A blend of three renowned California growing regions, our grapes come from Certified Sustainable vineyards in San Benito County, Paso Robles and San Lucas near Monterey. Each area brings unique characteristics to the final wine. From the heat and red fruit notes in Paso Robles, to the cooler maritime influences of San Lucas and San Benito which offer density and structure, Tribute Cabernet boasts rustic, layered flavors.
2016 was a moderate year compared to the proceeding vintages that had to combat the drought. The growing year started off with a wet winter. In the Spring there was a string of unseasonably warmer days followed by late rain, but once bud break started the Summer and Fall went very smoothly. 2016 delivered both exceptional quality and quantity for our Cabernet grapes.
