District 7 is named for Monterey County's status as the 7th of 17 wine-producing districts as determined by the California Department of Food and Agriculture. It's a playfully arcane reference, but one that embraces Monterey County's place in the Golden State's diverse viticultural history. Morning fog encroaches on District 7's estate Cabernet vineyards, but they are situated far enough from the Monterey Bay that the fog burns off early and allows for enough sun exposure to fully ripen the grapes. As the growing season passes into autumn, day/night temperature swings become more mild and the vines enjoy one of the longest growing seasons in the state, which endows the generous profile of the wine. From the winery: "Concentrated blackberry and black raspberry flavors are framed by well-integrated tannins. Our District 7 Cabernet Sauvignon finds the sweet spot where the power and structure of this classic varietal meet elegance and finesse."
