Open fermentation in a small container, punched down three times a day. We make this wine in the tradition of the great winemaking families living along the Douro River in Portugal. In vintages when the conditions are ideal, we blend our Cabernet Sauvignon with carefully selected brandy, preserving the natural sweetness and fruit of the season. To create this release, we blended previous releases of our Cabernet Sauvignon dessert wines to develop a wine of intense aroma and flavor. Every Iteration release is unique and distinctive, with nuances of the previous bottlings. We hope you enjoy this wine as much as we did making it!
