Samantha Sheehan, wine industry powerhouse and founder of POE Wines and Mommenpop Spirits, started Ultraviolet Wines as love letter to her home state of California. Under the Ultraviolet label she produces a sparkling rosé and this Cabernet Sauvignon. The majority of the grapes are sourced from several vineyards in the Red Hills AVA while the small addition of Cabernet Franc is sourced from Samantha’s personal vineyard and a friends’ vineyard in Coombsville, Napa Valley. Aged in a combination of new and used French oak for 16 months this is a classic expression of California Cabernet. Elegant aromas of cocoa powder and violets lead to a silky, rich palate of blackberry and black cherry with perfectly balanced tannins.
