As Antonio Galloni so aptly puts it, “Cloverdale Peak isn’t exactly the first place that comes to mind for top flight Cabernet Sauvignon, but here, in these high altitude mountain vineyards in Mendocino, planted at about 2,600 feet above sea level, proprietor Hien Nguyen and winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown are on to something special.” The Ampère 2012 ‘High Elevation’ Cabernet Sauvignon is from Hien’s Pine Mountain Vineyards and is a gorgeous example of this region’s and property’s potential. Racy and voluptuous in style, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers notes of dark red cherry, plum, smoke, menthol, and spice, with soft tannins that linger on the finish.
