Our third vintage of this appellation Cabernet, into which we declassified our final harvest from the Larkmead Vineyard at 37% of the blend. Other vineyards included were Somerston, 36%; Snowden, 15%; Lamoreaux, 7%; and DeSantis, 5%.
Bottled without filtration.
As with all of our wines, it was fermented with native yeasts and bacteria. This wine combines the harmony produced by traditional Bordelaise winemaking techniques with the voluptuousness of a great Napa Valley vintage.
Aging on the fine lees incorporates the oak so that the two years spent in half new barrels (a mixture of French and American) is barely noticeable.
