18 Bonita Cabernet Sauvignon
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Arizona Stronghold’s Bonita Spring Vineyard is farmed by our friend Luis Carrera, in the northwestern extremes of the Sulphur Springs Valley. (Any guy who has a Porsche for his last name has to be a badass, right?!) One of the coolest sites in the state, Bonita sits near the base of mighty Mount Graham, which presides topside from the impressive Pinaleño Mountain range. Decomposed granite and loam make up the soils, and this site just oozes terroir. Not surprisingly, this cool site and vintage gave us a beautifully red-fruit driven Cabernet, with classic red current, dust, forest floor, and a deep herbal undertone. Enjoy this old-world classic as you would any great Claret.
