This lush medium bodied 100% Cabernet Sauvignon has ample layers of bright and succulent fruits including black and red berries, cherries with hints of mocha, sweet vanilla and toasted cedar. Soft tannins round out this structured well balanced wine with a delightful long finish.
This Cabernet Sauvignon is produced with precise
hand-crafting in the Bordeaux style with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the world renown AVA’s
of Napa Valley. These
grapes were hand-harvested in September 2016 at 24.0 degrees Brix. The grapes
were picked cool, at 50 degrees F into small bins, gently destemmed, cold
soaked for 5 days to assist with extraction of skin tannins, color and bright
fruit, then fermented in 3/4 ton small lot fermenters. The fermentation was carefully hand-punched
down a couple times a day on phenolic development until dry. The wine was
pressed to barrels for malolactic fermentation, racked off and continued
elevage in 80% French Oak and 20% American Oak for 28 months. Each barrel was
hand racked and bottled with techniques that ensure maximum protection for
aging cellar-worthy collector caliber wines. Rich, lush medium bodied 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
