Checkerboard Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
The 2012 Checkerboard Aurora Vineyard will entice you with a sweet sandalwood nose, mouth-coating fruit—blueberry and rhubarb compote—and has a tremendously long finish with notes of dark cherry, graphite and mahogany.
The winery at Checkerboard is a small building reflecting a 'four-poster’ barn style found in early New England. We did not want a large building impacting the quiet and natural surrounding environment. As a result Steph Martin designed an attractive, yet functional winery that does not detract from the stunning nature of Checkerboard. The driving force at Checkerboard is to preserve the beauty of the surroundings and to impact that natural beauty as little as possible.
