The Nth degree is a selection of handcrafted, limited production wines created by Fifth Generation Winemaker, Karl D. Wente. The focus of this small lot program is to create wines that reflect the distinctive terroir of the Wente family’s estate vineyards in Livermore Valley and Arroyo Seco, Monterey. Each wine must show style and finesse of stellar degree to be included in the Nth degree program. Only the best of the best, regardless of vintage or variety, achieve this distinction.
Wente's 2015 Nth Degree Cabernet Sauvignon is one that represents a fantastic vintage overall. Complex, this wine first hits you with aromas of fruit and a secondary layer of herbs such as bay leaf, to tobacco and black tea. With lingering tannins and nice acidity, this wine is both drinkable now and worthy of storing in your cellar. Wente's winemakers recommend decanting this wine upon drinking.
