Dante Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Michael Pozzan Winery is owned and operated by Michael and Mary Ann Pozzan, who make wine under four different names including Dante. Michael was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, but spent his summer months with his grandparents on their 35 acre vineyard estate in Sonoma County. Michael’s grandfather purchased the land in the town of Healdsburg after WWII and planted Zinfandel grapes which he sold to local wineries. He always made sure that he retained a portion of the grapes to make his own wine. The 2018 Dante Cabernet Sauvignon shows an expressive nose of red plum, cassis, freshly roasted coffee, and cocoa powder. In the mouth, the wine is soft and jam-packed with fruit leading into a nice oaky finish.
