Steep hillside vineyards present the ultimate challenge. Mountainous terrain tests both the grower and the vine.
Hillside vineyards have less access to water, with the rockier soil also holding fewer nutrients. These conditions stress the vines, resulting in the production of a fraction of the fruit of most vineyards. The harsh environment causes the vines to struggle, yielding fewer clusters and smaller berry size. The result is berries that are loaded with rich, ripe, intensely concentrated flavors and complexity.
Juggernaut Hillside Cabernet is a wine that is fierce, brave, and delicious. Vanilla and ripe black currants dance on the palate with licorice, black fruit and cassis aromas on the nose.
