Goyette Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Robert Goyette was an original founder of La Crema, as well as an integral part of Chalk Hill and Benziger Family Wineries. This, however, represents only a small amount of his 30 years of expertise in the field of Winemaking. The 2012 Robert Goyette Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is a culmination of Robert’s efforts in pursuing an ultimate goal of producing an accessible and affordable Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon with all the characteristics of a superior wine.
For his Goyette label, Bob seeks out the premium grapes from the heart of California's wine country and does what he does best, working to achieve the ultimate balance between the elements, matching strengths and frailties, high notes with lows, in order to create a wine that evokes the purest beauty, as it is experienced both through the senses and the emotions. Only when he feels that the basal and auxiliary melodies of a given varietal are resonating perfectly does he feel comfortable calling the wine his own." -Winery

The 2012 Cabernet grapes were chosen from 2 separate vineyards in Sonoma Valley and Alexander Valley. This wine has deep fruit, good tannic structure and notes of cassis followed by blackberry, olive, chocolate, earth and a touch of vanilla. A long velvety and lingering finish, great for Lamb or Beef Burger with Feta, salt cod with chorizo, or mushroom pizza. 14.6% Alc. Content.
