Swagger is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the Eagle Summit Vineyard, clones 4 and 7 and the Redhead Vineyard, clone 685 by Thomas Brown. We use 100% French oak barrels, 80% new from Taransaud, Darnajou and Hermitage.
The 2015 Swagger is dark, rich and concentrated. It shows an abundance of fresh fruit, black cherry and coco, sweet tobacco and hints of crushed stone, herb and cola. There is ample acidity and the tannins are soft and integrated. One of the characteristics we've heard Thomas use to describe the vintage is sucrosity - the sensation of sweetness without residual sugar. When you taste this wine, you will immediately understand what this means.
