Named after Coach’s great grandfather and father, Jean Louis Vermeil, this a perfect marriage between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This approachable and charismatic Cabernet Sauvignon blend gets the best of both the Rosedale and the Pickett Road blocks.
The 2017 Jean Louis Vermeil Cabernet Sauvignon is incredibly aromatic. Filled is lots of classic cassis and raspberry as well as notes of sappy flowers, mint, violet and incense nuances that develop with time in the glass. Flavors of blackberry and tea are savory, allowing the youthful acidity to shine through. The touch of Cabernet Franc rounds out this amazing Cabernet with a tannin structure that will soften with time. This full bodied vintage will age comfortably in your cellars for 15 years.
