Winemaker Martha McClellan notes that the 2015 Checkerboard Aurora is "structured and offers finely polished tannins with a full mid-palate that is lifted by natural acidity and enhanced in a lengthy, lingering finish.”

Aurora Vineyard, one of four Checkerboard vineyards, is nestled in a small valley midway up Diamond Mountain on a large knoll at 1,200 feet. Crafted by renowned winemaker Martha McClellan, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was barrel fermented, pressed, then put back in a new barrel for aging. Martha notes that “Aromas are both sweet and savory, broadly expressive of fresh blackberries, Bing cherries, cranberries, and dried herbs. On the palate, the 2015 Checkerboard Aurora is structured and offers finely polished tannins with a full mid-palate that is lifted by natural acidity and enhanced in a lengthy, lingering finish.”
