Wine Advocate Review
The 2017 Hamel Family Ranch is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Cabernet Franc from vines planted in the mid-1990s. Medium to deep ruby-purple, it has classic aromas of cedar, graphite, violets and cassis with nuances of charcuterie, leather, milk chocolate and dried herbs. In the mouth, it's medium to full-bodied with mineral-laced fruits and a firm, grainy frame, finishing very long with good freshness. Drink Date: 2020-2030.
Wine Tasting Notes
With a deep, clear ruby tone in the glass, Hamel Family Wines Hamel Family Ranch Sonoma Cabernet presents an alluring nose of plum and cassis enveloped by scents of cedar, flint, bergamot rind and spice. Its wonderfully rich and textured on the entry with great fruit intensity that escalates through the palate. Supple in contour, the wine captures pure ripe red and dark fruits that sustain through to a structured, elegant finish. The wine shows a generosity that can be accessible in youth, but will certainly reward those who cellar over the next five to ten years.
