Scholium Project 'Chuy' Nelligan Road Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County USA 2011 2011 was a perfect year for the Nelligan Road Ranch. The Fall was cool there, as it was all over the Pacific Northwest, but the vineyard is high altitude and west-facing so it is bathed in a constant breeze from the Pacific and warmth from the afternoon sun. Rot was never a problem here, and we let the fruit hang and hang without danger. As always, the vintage is light, delicate, graceful. This is never a muscular Cabernet. Even in full ripeness, it hearkens back to another time in Northern California. Cabernet Sauvignon pairs nicely with foods high in fat and protein, including steak, duck, and game. It's a great complement to hearty stews, ribs, and dark, rich sauces.
