Tasting notes

The Cabernet provides ripe plum fruit. The blend is well balanced and does not overwhelm the senses. The finish is lengthy, with a recognizable American oak sweetness.

Vintage Notes

The Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel in the 2018 Cinema perfectly complement each other. There are recognizable baking spices from the Zinfandel and a firm tannin structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a fun blend to make, as there are many options. The art is to find the right Zinfandel lot to pair with the correct Cabernet lot. There are lots of jammy red fruits on entry, and a full mid-palate.
 

Viticulture

Director’s Cut Cinema is composed each vintage from Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Because we’ve made single varietal Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel for many years now, we understand the diverse profiles of different selections and know which work best when blended together.
