Tasting Notes: Upon opening this Cabernet, one gets the sense of walking through a berry bramble, dark berry aromas fill the senses. On the palate expect an overindulgence of black and blue fruit that carries through the long, dense finish. Warmed with oak, vanilla and clove polish off the bouquet with a sweet sense of earth; its chalky tannins are palpable.
Winemaking: Grape lots were blended from several benchland and mountain ranches that naturally yield smaller crops and result in intensely colored and flavored wine. Vine canopies were carefully managed to protect the grapes 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.
