WINEMAKING NOTES

The 2016 vintage brought a warmer then average spring and early summer balanced with the warm days and cool nights of July and August. The conditions allowed for small berries, with average yields. The fruit reached perfect physiological ripeness retaining natural grape acidity resulting in very balanced wines with low alcohol and rich concentrated varietal flavors. The wine was fermented in small lots using hand-crafted winemaking techniques and matured for 22 months in a combination of new and seasoned, two year old, and neutral Taransaud French Oak Barrels. The wine was racked three times in barrel and bottled in July of 2018. 820 Cases

TASTING NOTES

Aromatically, the wine is uplifting, with notes of dark cherries, earth, cedar wood, raspberries, and plums. On the palate the wine is richly concentrated, beautifully focused, with deep-set dark cherry, chocolate, cedar flavors, complimented with black olive and fine-grain tannins. The wine continues with red and black plums, saddle leather, berries and dusty tannins. The wine is wonderful to drink today and will continue to evolve in balance, length and complexity as the more structured Cabernet Sauvignon matures. This wine will continue to develop and excel over the next ten years.
