About Z. Alexander Brown 2016 Uncaged, Cabernet Sauvignon, California

Known for his band and his music, Zac Brown is a creative spirit who has a passion for bringing music, food, and people together. The next logical step for him was to make wine. For this, his Uncaged series he teamed up with the resources of Delicato Family Wines and Napa Valley Winemaker John Killebrew, who grew up in California, developed a love for nature, gardening, cooking, and music at an early age. As a winemaker, John is able to stay immersed in nature. Working in partnership with Zac and accessing the Delicato's superb quality grapes he's able to create wines with true character and style that offer a lot for a little. This Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from prime vineyards. The 2016 vintage another of exceptional quality. The grapes for this 2016 Cab were sourced from Mendocino County, Lodi and from the Delicato Family's own San Bernabe Vineyard. The fruit was harvested during the cool early morning hours to ensure that the concentrated fruit flavors were captured at the peak of ripeness. Grapes were de-stemmed, moved into stainless steel tanks and slowly warmed to fermentation temperatures. Following the completion of primary and malolactic fermentation, the wine was drained and gently pressed onto a selection of French and American oak. The final blend for this boldly flavored wine was thoughtfully crafted by Zac and John after multiple hands-on tastings and blending sessions featuring a selection of the best lots of the vintage. The wine unfolds with rich aromas of black cherry, mocha and sweet toasted oak notes. Bold tannins frame a powerful mid-palate layered with mouth-filling flavors of black cherry and milk chocolate. Smooth and balanced, an elegant finesse defines the long and lingering finish.
