Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Cabernet Sauvignon is bold and balanced, a full, rounded wine with luscious layers of fruit, earth and spice. One the nose, notes of black cherry, blackberry, cocoa, and earth lead to underpinnings of cassis and dried lavender. The palate mirrors the nose as all these flavors interweave harmoniously within a frame of fine tannins and bright, balancing acidity. The finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) After grapes were pressed cold and settled in tank for 48 hours, the juice was racked off of the lees to barrels for fermentation. Once primary fermentation and partial malolactic fermentation were accomplished, the barrels were stirred every two weeks to keep the yeast suspended in the wine to enhance texture. With the desired mouthfeel achieved, the wine was allowed to settle and age sur lie in barrel for nine months.
