Freelander District One Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Freelander is the creation of Mike O’Connell, who seems to have the Midas touch in creating value driven brands that have great success. Mike and winemaker Larry Levin, are responsible for bringing brands to the market that many of you are probably familiar with - Pavillon, Grayson Cellars, Hanging Vine and Block Nine. The Freelander wines are made to be immediately appealing and user friendly. The grapes for the wines are selected from several sources throughout California and made in St Helena by Larry Levin. Larry has over 30 years of experience making wines in Napa for Quintessa and Turnbull. He takes great pride in producing wines that are driven by their varietal character and have balance, all while providing tremendous value. Freelander Cabernet is aged for 10 months in a combination of French and American oak with about 20% new. Look for cherry and toasted oak aromas followed by a medium-bodied style with cherry, mocha, plum and toast flavors.
