The 2017 Five Bands is another impressive wine from Vineyard 36, especially within the context of the year. Powerful and vibrant, the 2017 is impeccably balanced. Bright red fruit, licorice, spice, chocolate, leather and sweet new oak build as this powerful, racy wine shows off its considerable appeal.

Homage to the Stanley
Cup known to honor every player on the winning NHL team by inscribing their
name on its iconic ”Five Bands”, our 2017 Five Bands salutes the trophy's glory
with this crowning achievement.
Dark black currant, chocolate covered espresso bean, hints of smoked bacon and scorched earth. Blueberry and blackberry are the dominant fruit descriptors. Incredibly rich, concentrated and mouth coating upon entry with a huge, firm tannin profile throughout and a long, drawn out finish. A true collector’s Cabernet. 95% Cabernet Sauvignon (90% Panek, 5% F-Block GIII Vineyard, 5% Merlot Orchard Ave)
