Tasting Notes: These select Demeter-certified Biodynamic vineyards were chosen for this wine because of their rocky soil composition, which encourages deep root growth, resulting in complex flavor development in the fruit. This wine exhibits a pure expression of Cabernet, shaded by dusty, loamy earth notes backlit by currant, sage and spice flavors.
Winemaking: Grape lots were blended from several bench land and mountain ranches that naturally yield smaller crops and result in intensely colored and mouth-filling wine. Vine canopies were carefully managed to protect the Cabernet from direct sunlight while the fruit was allowed an extended hang time to fully ripen. In the winery we used a variety of techniques to maximize flavor intensity while managing tannin levels including cold soaking, pump over, and varying fermentation lengths and temperatures. The wine was aged in oak for 16 months.
