Inconnu Clarksburg Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Inconnu is a project with great dedication to making low intervention wines from ethically farmed grapes. These wines are meant to be enjoyed every day - not just on special occasions. We are inspired by the French tradition of vin de soif, or "wine of thirst." Our wines are pleasureable and light, but still express great care and devotion to craft.
This old-school Cab, from 80+ year old vines (possibly the oldest planting in Napa and Sonoma) is lean, and built to age, but with some time and air to open up, it expresses brambly and dusty red fruit with intense forest floor undertones. This is an elegant and classic example of Cab, showing all of the varietal qualities people hunt for, but in a much more delicate and subtle expression. Decant and drink now, or let her sit for a few years.
