Flavors of juicy tart cherry and blackberry, and a medium body with a clean finish and soft resonating tannins.
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wine reflects the concentrated depth of flavor and smoothness that 32-year-old vines can produce. Our vineyard has a unique varietal expression of Cabernet Sauvignon where it makes a very elegant wine. 2012 was an exceptional growing season.
Our vineyard has a unique varietal expression of Cabernet Sauvignon where it makes a very elegant wine. 2012 was an exceptional growing season. The even weather allowed me to wait until the flavors arrived at just the right point for picking. Since the fruit manifests delicate type of aromas and flavors, I try to use fermentation techniques and barrel programs that help these types of flavor develop more deeply and pronounced. I continued developing this beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon fruit throughout its fermentation and complimenting it with elegant French oak.
Fermented for 16 days in stainless steel and then aged in 100% new French Barrels for 38 months before bottling on 2/15/2016.
The wine shows an exquisite color of deep burgundy red.
