2021 Olema Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon bottle

Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2021 Olema Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes hand-selected from premier vineyards in Alexander Valley and Dry Creek in Sonoma County. This deeply flavored wine features layers of fruit and a long, intense finish.

Vintage Notes

The 2021 harvest will be remembered as a harvest of rebirth and of achievement for Olema Wines. After the challenges that 2020 brought, our team was especially looking forward to this vintage. The warmer, drier winter pushed bud break earlier than usual and was followed by a dry but steady summer growing season. Harvest began in mid-August and continued steadily before ramping up in September as the heat rose across the valley. Drought conditions throughout California led to lighter crop yields; however, we are very pleased with the exceptional quality of fruit and resulting wine in the 2021 Olema Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winemaking Notes

The 2021 Olema Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of black cherry, plum and hints of cedar box. Full-bodied and balanced, this wine shows flavors of wild berries, licorice, and black olive on the palate. Silky tannins are matched with a rich fruit core throughout the long finish.

James Suckling

A lot of chocolate, coconut and vanilla on the nose with some ripe dark fruit. Some tobacco, too. Medium-bodied, firm and fruity. Delicious now.

James Suckling

Lots of currants, vanilla and dark berries with walnuts and chocolate. It’s full-bodied, layered and flavorful. This is a rich cab and needs time to come together. Try after 2021.

James Suckling

Beautiful aromas of blackcurrants, ink and some black truffle. Medium-bodied, linear and tight with firm and silky tannins. Some spice and hazelnut in the aftertaste. Drink now or hold.
