Cannonball Eleven Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

America, California
Cannonball Eleven Cabernet Sauvignon

The wine presents as deep ruby red in color with an almost black hue, indicative of the fruit profile and depth of flavor. On the nose the bouquet opens with boysenberry and black cherry fruit followed by a silky crème de cassis vein accented by hints of licorice, and vanilla spice. Dark cherry flavors continue on the palate; smooth and velvety with tannins becoming more evident on the mid-palate before softening to finish with a flourish of currant-blackberry-fig compote and a lingering savory balsamic complex.

Winery Description

Cannonball Wine Company was founded in 2006 by longtime winemaker Dennis Hill and former attorney turned wine entrepreneur Yoav Gilat. Dennis is a Sonoma County native from a family with a long viticultural tradition in the region. The iconic label image of a child doing a ‘Cannonball’ refers to jumping into the water with your knees tucked into your chest in order to make a big splash and get your nearby friends as wet as possible.

The Cannonball name and label symbolize the uninhibited and pure spirit of a child having fun. This is the soul of Cannonball Wine Company: life - and wine - should befun! And it is exactly this pure and uninhibited spirit that animates Dennis and Yoav’s passion to produce honest, high quality wines at great prices that are fun to drink.

We hope a splash of Cannonball winewill make you smile like a big kid doing Cannonballs - and don’t forget to share a splash or two with yourfriends!
